Mixed Vegetable Paruppusli

Paruppusli is a popular Tamil Side Dish and popularly made with Kothavaranga or beans. I have already posted Beans Paruppusli before. Today I tried a variation with beans, carrots, peas and corn. It tasted really good.


Beans about 200 gm (25-30)
Carrots 2-3
Peas 1 cup
Corn 1/2 cup

Oil and salt to taste

For the pulse ball
Toor Dal 1 cup (will make around 10 small balls)
Red Chillies 2

Method of Preparation

1. Soak the toor dal for a couple of hours.

2. Grind into a coarse paste with chillies and salt adding little water.

3. Roll into small balls. 1 cup will make around 10 balls.

4. Steam the balls in an idli plate for 10-12 minutes.

5. Crumble the pulse balls and keep aside.

6. Heat oil in a pan and add the beans, carrots, peas and corn. Cook till it is well done.

7. Add the crumbled dal to this and some salt. Mix well

Serve with some rasam, sambar or kozhambu of your choice
