In one of my previous posts you saw how to make bean sprouts. I had a big batch of these sprouts, so I made these Usli. You can eat usli as is, or with bread, chapathi, rice and sambar as a side dish. OK, you can eat it anyway you want, but here comes the recipe for the same. I have to mention, we used to eat this with Jolada Roti when we were in Bijapur. So yummy.
- 3 cups bean spouts cooked for 1 whistle in the pressure cooker.
- 5 green chillies.
- 1/4 cup freshly grated coconut.
- 6 curry leaves.
- 5 tsp finely chopped cilantro.
- 2 tsp Oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds, pinch of hing, 1 tsp Haldi for seasoning.
- Salt to taste.
- 2 tsp lemon juice.
Pressure cook for one whistle the sprouts. Heat oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds, hing, curry leaves, and haldi. Next, add the cooked sprouts. Mix well. Add salt, coconut. Mix well and keep stirring for a few minutes.
Just before serving add the cilantro and also lemon juice.
