For Seasoning:


  1. Soak the Dal’s in water over night or in hot boiling water for at least 2 hours.
  2. Pluck the florets from the bunch. Let us have very small florets as they will cook fast. First we will saute the broccoli separately in a pan. Heat a pan and add oil. When the oil is hot, add mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds starts to sputter, add split urid dal and fry them till they turn golden brown color. Then add the broccoli florets and mix well
  3. Add salt and turmeric and saute the florets in oil in medium-high flame for 5 minutes. The florets will cook quickly. If the stem is too thick, we can cut them and add it to the pan. Take out the cooked and seasoned broccoli from flame to a plate. Now we are going to prepare crumbled dal
  4. Rinse the Dal’s and strain the water and grind it in mixer once along with red chilli, hing and salt without adding water
  5. The ground mixture should be coarse. Heat the oil in the pan, and add the ground paste and keep the flame in low
  6. Allow the ground paste to cook in oil and it will crumble down into smaller pieces. Finally add the cooked broccoli and mix well with the crumbled dals.
  7. The yummy Broccoli Paruppu Usili is ready to serve with hot rice.
