Ground nut curry(ओल्या दाण्यांची उसळ)



This curry or Usal I made as I had a lot of ground nuts even after finishing almost half by boiling it in saltwater ( उकडलेल्या शेंगा) . This Usal goes well with chapati or bhakari and is quite filling. So next time you get raw ground nut, do try this.

Ingredients:
1. 1 cup raw ground nut kernel
2. 1 medium onion chopped
3. 2-3 garlic cloves chopped 
4. 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander 
5. Few curry leaves
6. 1/2 tsp rai 
7. 1/2 tsp jeera
8. 1 tbsp red chilli powder 
9. 1/2 tbsp turmeric powder 
10. 1 tbsp garam masala  
11. 3 tbsp oil
12. Pinch of jaggery 
13. Salt to taste 
14. Few drops of lemon juice


Preparation:
1. Pressure cook the ground nut kernel adding some water and little salt for 3 whistles 
2. Discard the excess water 
3. In a pan, heat oil and add rai and jeera. Add curry leaves
4. Add chopped onion and fry till golden brown
5. Add chopped garlic and fry for 1-2 mins
6.Now add all turmeric powder, red chilli powder, garam masala, jaggery and fry for few mins
7. Add cooked ground nut kernel, add salt and lemon juice and mix well
8. Add water and boil Usal for 4-5 mins
9. Add chopped coriander and mix
Serve hot with chapati or bhakari
