Beans Paruppu Usili

 Beans paruppu usili is a very common dish in TamBrahm families. I got to know about this dish from my college friend who is a kannadiga Brahmin. We infact made her mom write all of her drool worthy and got each of us a copy.  This dish goes well with sambar rice and curd rice. It needs a little preparation ahead of time though for soaking channa dhal. Other vegetables that can be used in place of beans are cluster beans, carrot, beans, broccoli, banana stem, beetroot and radish. Do try out this recipe and share your valuable feedback.

Green Chicken Curry

Green chicken curry is made using coriander leaves and green chillies for the spiciness. Furthermore, greek yogurt or hung curd is used to give the soft texture to the chicken. This is a fool proof recipe as i have tried it multiple times in my kitchen and everytime the taste turns out just awesome and the color of the gravy is so tempting. I just like the way the curry turned out - it's spicy, the chicken pieces are tender and thoroughly cooked. It can be served with tiffin items like dosa, roti, idli or with just plain white rice.
