Mixed pulses stir fry/ ಕಾಳುಗಳ ಪಲ್ಯ ಅಥವಾ ಉಸಲಿ or usli is a commonly prepared traditional recipe.. I learnt this recipe from my mother in law..
It just needs soaking of the pulses. Later preparing the dish is easy.
1 small cup ಹೆಸರುಕಾಳು ( Green gram )
1 small cup ಕಡಲೆಕಾಳು( Kaala Channa )
1 small cup ಅಲಸಂದೆ ಕಾಳು(Pigeon peas)
1 small cup ಬಟಾಣಿ ( Green peas )
1 big onion or 2 small onions — finely chopped(Optional)
1 big tomato or 2 small tomatoes — finely chopped
4 tspns grated coconut ( Optional)
Or alternatively you can use only one type of pulse… In below picture I have used only Kabul Channa (200 grams) for this palya or stir fry …
3 tspns -> Oil
Mustard seeds or sasive – 1 spoon
Jeera or Jeerige – 1 spoon
Kadale bele or Channa dal – 1 spoon
Uddina bele or Urad dal – 1 spoon
Byadige Chilli – 1 broken into 2 slits
Green chillies – 4 to 5 ( based on spicy levels consumed at home )
Red chilli powder – 1 to 2 tspns
Salt as required
 Soak all the pulses mentioned above like green peas, Green gram, Kaala Channa, Pigeon peas overnight.
 Boil all the pulses soaked, in pressure cooker upto 3 or 4 whistles and cool.
 Now take a pan and season the ingredients mentioned under seasoning, add, Chopped Onions and fry till little golden color and then add
tomotoes chopped and fry till tomatoes fully get cooked, it gets mushy at this stage, now add boiled pulses, chilli powder, salt and close the lid.
Let it cook for 3-4 mins.. At this stage, check and stir well to avoid bottom of the pan getting burnt.. Serve.
This goes well with Chapathis, rice and rasam, dosas..
