Hesarukalu usli recipe - Muga usli - Green gram sundal

hesarukalu usli
Hesarukalu usli or muga usli - Usli is a Konkan cuisine prepared with boiled pulses, lentils, fresh coconut and seasoned with chillies. Seasoning with dry red chillies adds some chilli flavor to the dish. Usli is also known as sundal. It is a naivedya and fasting dish usually prepared during Navratri. When I was a kid,  my mother was making uslis with different legumes with different versions. Sometimes, when we were not eating it for fasting, she was making it with onion, ginger and garlic. But my favourite version is sundal type usli which does not add onion, ginger or garlic.

Zucchini dal recipe - Curry for rice and roti

Zucchini dal
Zucchini dal recipe -Zucchini dal is a healthy and delicious curry prepared to serve with hot plain rice, roti or chapathi. Similar type of dal can be made by using beans, brinjal, potato and ivy gourd. This is a South Indian konkani style curry which uses fresh coconut as key ingredient for the masala paste. In this masala paste, I have used green chillies instead of red chillies. I often make vegetable dal with such masala paste to serve with rice. The combination of thoor dal, masala paste and above mentioned vegetables are awesome. There are several other ways to make dishes with zcchini such as zucchini dosa, kadhi, sambar, stir fry etc.
