Ullikadala pappu pulusu / Green onions curry



preparation time :30 mints || serves 4 to 5 persons || cuisine :Andhra
Ullikadala pappu pulusu is a very tasty curry…i got this recipe from my mother-in-law..basically i love dhal curries…I've never tasted this curry before marriage…when my husband asked me to make this curry..i got this recipe from my mother-in-law..when i heard from her..i thought..ohh..why these people are crazy about this green onions..what taste will come to curry by adding only green onions to dhal…but when i made and tasted the curry…hmmmm very tasty…now even i became crazy about this curry..i used to bring this green onions from store thinking in mind to make some new recipe..but finally i used to make dhal.. coz i don't wan to miss this curry..hope next time i will surely  try other recipe with this green onions…:-)


Ullikadalu( green onions) 2 bunches  (each bunch contain 3 or 4)

Toor dhal ( kandi pappu) 1cup

onion half (optional)

green chillies 3 to 4

tamarind  (a very small ball)

jagree (bellam) a small piece

redchilli powder

turmeric powder


Tadka/ Talimpu /Seasoning:-

oil 1 tspn

crushed garlic 3 to 4 cloves

broken redchillies 2

cumin seeds 1/2 tspn

mustard seeds 1/2 tspn

Hing  ( a small pinch)

curry leaves.


Pressure cook dhal up to 3 whistles by adding 3 cups of water …when the dhal is cooked to soft..now add chopped green onions…sliced onion, green chillies, red chilli powder,jagree piece, turmeric powder,salt, and tamarind juice..( you can either squeeze the juice from tamarind or press the tamarind well into tight ball and add it to dal....while cooking all the tamarind juice will be extracted..so that when the curry is done ..we can remove that…).

Here dhal should be loose..that's y we call it pappu pulusu…not only pappu..now if the dal is not loose..add  a glass water and let it cook in sim to medium for 10 minutes…till the onions become soft …now off the flame..

Now finish off the curry by adding tadka to it…heat  a tspn of oil in a frying pan..when oil is hot enough add crushed garlic and sauté it for a minute..now add red chilies,cumin and mustard seeds..sauté till the mustard seeds pop up..now add  a pinch of hing for nice flavoring..add curry leaves ..sauté for few seconds and off the flame..add this tadka to dhal and stir ..

It goes will with rice and ghee and also with rotis…

enjoy cooking and eating..:-)
NOTE: we usually add jegree(bellam ) in pulusu but not in pappu (dal) curries..but this curry is not dhal..its pappu pulusu..so we have to add a small piece of jagree to get the correct taste…don't worry ..dhal won't taste sweet…
