Directions

Generally this is a featured dish in a typical. Tamizh Brahmin wedding. When I make this at home, I generally steam the paruppu Usili and it is low on oil too. When my daughter relocated I had to come up with an instant mix which is easy to cook and yet taste the same. So here is the tried and tasted usili mix which you can prepare in advance and store for long time.
