Beans Usali

Its one of the most traditional dishes in South. A little tricky is the old one. But what I am sharing today is the easy version. Almost tastes the same as traditional, this one can be quicky made especially when you are in hurry and yet don’t want to compromise on the taste. The best part being it just can be made in a tsp of oil. So low on fat and high on taste and nutrition. J

I have always loved Poriyals. This version is not regularly made at my place. This time mom made and it tasted yum. Hope u taste this and like.
