Ghuguni Recipe checks all the boxes for me. It is vegan, gluten-free, protein-rich and easy to make. A simple side dish that can be served as a snack too. Try making this yum curry and you will fall in love with it!
So I had mixed both and made my usal.
Melinda says that Usail or Usali is a purely vegetarian dish prepared from either pulses, bamboo shoots, crushed jackfruit seeds, banana flowers, bread fruit, raw banana or tubers like sweet potato, suran, kadoo karande, godd karande, Asiatic yam, etc. no onion, no garlic.
fish and chicken is generally avoided by the Hindus.
The usali in Goa that I have eaten are generally dry dishes. You can keep some water for the gravy if you so desire.
