INDIAN RECIPE: HPisi Bellha Hoolli Annam

Ingredients for HPisi Bellha Hoolli Annam:

  • 1/2 cup toor dhal
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 2 3/4 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon asafoetida, optional
  • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds
  • 4 dried red chillies, stalks and seeds removed
  • Small piece cinnamon stick
  • 20 cloves
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated or desiccated coconut
  • 500 g (1 lb) green beans
  • 1/4 cup tamarind pulp or 2 teaspoons instant tamarind
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons mustard seed
  • 12 curry leaves
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews

Directions for making HPisi Bellha Hoolli Annam:

  1. Wash the dhal and rice, drain well, then put into a saucepan with water, turmeric and salt, bring to the boil, cover and cook until water is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile heat 3 teaspoons oil and fry the asafoetida (if used) for about 3 minutes.
  3. Remove the asafoetida and fry the coriander and chillies for 3 or 4 minutes.
  4. Put asafoetida, coriander, chillies, cinnamon, cloves and coconut into electric blender, add just enough water to facilitate blending and blend until spices are finely ground.
  5. Top and tail beans and cut into small pieces.
  6. Cook in lightly salted boiling water until almost tender. Drain, reserving liquid.
  7. Soak the tamarind pulp in 1/2 cup of this liquid, and squeeze to dissolve the pulp, then strain and discard seeds and fibres. If using instant tamarind, dissolve in the hot liquid.
  8. Heat remaining oil in saucepan and fry the mustard seeds and curry leaves until the seeds pop.
  9. Add beans, tamarind liquid, ground spice and coconut mixture and bring to the boil, cover and simmer 5 minutes.
  10. Add the cooked dhal and rice and stir well, taking care not to mash the grains.
  11. Heat the ghee in a small pan and fry the cashew nuts until golden.
  12. Pour the ghee over the rice and mix.
  13. Serve hot, garnished with the fried cashews.
  14. Enjoy your HPisi Bellha Hoolli Annam. Hope you love this Indian recipe.

Note: Slices of fried eggplant and potato are sometimes added to this dish.
