So here you go.............. posting my first receipe.
This is one of my favorite receipe made with cluster beans (kothavarangai).So wanted to start my posting with this.Whenver I get this particular vegetable I will always try this receipe, but in vain.But I was glad to finally make it right this weekend.
Cluster beans paruppu usili:
cluster beans - chopped into small pieces
one handful of channa dhal (soaked for an hour)
2 red chillies.
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp urad dhal
a pinch of asofoetida
few curry leaves
Steam the chopped vegetables with a pinch of turmeric and salt for 10 mins.I did this process using a pressure cooker(without weight) for 10 mins.
grind the channa dhal, red chillies, and cumin coarsly by sprinkling some water.
In a pan add a tsp of Olive oil, and add the grinded mixture.stir well using the spatula until it becomes crumbly.(like egg scramble).take it away from the stove and cool it.
Parallely in another pan add 1 tsp of olive oil add the tempering ingredients. After the mustard pop and add chopped onion and fry till translucent.Now add the steamed vegetables, cover and cook for 5 mins and then add the channa dhal mixture and stir well for few minutes and switch of the stove.
