Parupusili - Protien rich dish

 Lentil crumble, Parupusili is a high protien nutritious side dish which is rich in protien. It can be made plain and also mixed with a few veggies that enhance the taste. In general the parupusili that is made in marriages and big functions are a bit soft but at home when the quantity is less you can make it fried as per your need. But as a house hold we prefer soft parupusili. 

The process my mom used to make is quite lengthy and during the early days of marriage I used to dread a lot to make it. But when I learnt the quick way it became a regular in our home. Mom used to steam the dal mixture after grinding the batter then crumble it and then make the parupusili. Some parupusili calls for just moong dal too.
