Another no onion no garlic side dish for sambhar,rasam,mor kozumbu. This one is also made as the other poriyals. Just that the veggie changes. In South India lot of veggies are made with the same style. These beans can also be made without coconut like Usili, that I would share some other time.
Here’s the recipe:
Avrakkai (Cluster Beans): 2 cups chopped
Coconut (scraped or slices): 3 tbsp
Green Chilies: 1-2
Oil: 1 tsp
Mustard seeds: 1 tsp
Chana dal: 1 tsp
Urad dal: 1 tsp
Turmeric powder: 1 tsp
Salt: to taste
Curry Leaves: 4-5
Water: 1 1/2 cups
- Heat oil in a pan. Add “to temper” items.
- Add curry leaves, and the cluster beans and turmeric powder.
- Add 1 1/2 cups water and cook till done.
- As the water dries, add the coconut chili paste and mix well.
Using coconut oil will help enhance the flavors.
