         Some people make usili with chana dal, i make with only toor dal.Same way i make usili with beetroot and banana flower too.Usili and mor kulambhu is the best combo in the past,now and for ever.I really enjoyed making it,Guess you guys will too.

  •  I am being lazy to steam the toor dal mixture in idly pot.This method saves 20 minutes of your xooking time than the above mentioned method.
  • If you are steaming the mixture it takes little more oil than i have mentioned here.
  • You can follow the same procedure and do with beetroot and banana flower too.
