Chikkudu koora/Italian green beans curry/broad beans curry

Ingredients :
  • Chikkudu kaya / broad beans : 1 lb
  • onions : 1/2 cup chopped finely
  • red chili powder : 1 tsp
  • coriander powder : 1/2 tsp
  • salt : to taste
  • oil : 1 tbsp
  • mustard seeds: 1/2 tsp
  • cumin seeds: 1/2 tsp
  • chana dal : 1 tsp
  • urad dal : 1 tsp
  • ginger garlic paste : 1/2 tsp
  • sesame seeds powder : 2 tsp
  • curry leaves : few
  • turmeric : 1/4 tsp
  • coriander leaves  for garnishing



 Method :

First pressure cook the broad beans in the pressure cooker for about one whistle after cutting them into bite size pieces.
Drain the water and keep aside. In a big pan add in the oil. Add the mustard seeds and allow them to crackle.
Add in the chana dal, urad dal, cumin, curry leaves and turmeric in the same order. Now add in the onions and cook till the onions become light brown in color.
Add the ginger garlic paste and cook till the raw flavour goes away. Add the red chili powder, salt and sesame seed powder.
Mix well. Now add the broad beans and fry for some time. Lastly add in the coriander powder and switch off the stove.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot either with rice or rotis
Kitchen Tips :
When you are making vadas, if the batter is watery - you will have the problem of oil splattering when you fry it. Add a tablespoon of ghee to the batter and your problem will be solved.
To thicken any gravy or soup add corn flour to it. It is an excellent thickening agent. Remember to mix it in good water before adding to avoid lumps

If you want to have soft idlis, do not beat the batter before pouring idlis. The air bubble sin the batter helps you to get soft idlis. Beating the batter removes these air bubbles..
