Gorichikudukaya Koora. Gavar Phalli ka Subzi. Cluster Beans Stir-Fry. Kothavarankai Ellu Poriyal.
I am a big fan of this vegetable! But none of them like it, at home. Usually they say, it increases one’s bile secretion! I am not very sure, whether its true! Anyway, my mommy used to add lots of cumin seeds…believing that it would counter-react with that excess bile secretion!! If you want to know my mother’s recipe for this, you know where to scroll, right! Today, I slightly tweaked her recipe…used sesame seeds in place of cumin seeds. It turned out nice. So here you go..
Cluster beans 1/2 kilo
Sesame seeds black/brown 1 small cup
Dry red chilies 1 fistful
Turmeric powder 1/4 spoon
Garlic 6-8 cloves crushed
Sesame oil few spoons
Mustard seeds few
Curry laves to garnish.
Dry toast the chilies and sesame seeds, each separately…and powder them together.
Chop the beans evenly, set aside.
Boil water in a vessel…add the chopped beans to it. Cook till it is kind of semi-done.
Now discard the water…retain he beans, of course.
In a wide wok, heat oil. add the spices. Now stir-in the veggies, add salt and turmeric…stir0fry for couple of minutes.
Finally add the powdered item from step 1. Mix well…let this be in high heat for 2-4 minutes. Remove from heat, serve warm to go with your meals.
