    Mullai, I’d like to add that after steaming the dal, leave it to cool and then break it up with fingers, udurnthuvidum.it will be like puttu. now add it after the onions (at the same stage as in your recipe)

    Dear Mullai, i’ve been tyring your recipes and for the past few weeks, after my hubby tastes the dish and gives positive comments, i’ll tell him “courtesy mullai”. so even if i make a new dish from any other source, he’d ask, “Mullai-ya?” I reside in Chennai. about this paruppu usili, i have a suggestion for those who dont want to use much oil – after grinding the dal, steam cook it the way we make idlis. less oil consumed and also it is softer. i dont grind the kothavaranga. also, along with dal i also grind fennel seeds and red chillis. instead of adding red chilli powder.

    bye, Deepa
