Simple & Quick Subzis ~ Goru Chikkudukaaya Koora

Cluster beans / Gawar / Goru chiikudukaaya / Matikkaya / Chavali kayi

A simple curry and dal are what my idea of a (part of :)) decent meal and today it was the turn of this hassle free cluster beans subzi. The subzi prepared in a typical South Indian style is yummier with the added sweetness of coconut and the aromatic curry leaves. It goes well with rice / rotis.

Ingredients:
2 cups chopped goruchikkudukayalu
1/4 cup shredded fresh coconut
1/2 tsp sugar (optional)
1.5 tsp salt
1.5 tsp chilli powder
For tadka: 2 tsp oil, few curry leaves, 1/8 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp each - mustard seeds, chana dal, cumin seeds, urad dal



The cooking part:
* Trim the ends and string the beans, if necessary and chop them into about 1/8-inch pieces.
* Heat oil in a kadai or a sauté pan and add mustard seeds, chana dal, urad dal, cumin seeds and curry leaves.
* When the dals turn reddish, add the cluster beans, turmeric powder and salt. Stir them, cover the pan and cook on low - medium heat till the beans turn tender. Keep stirring once or twice in between.
* Then add the coconut and chilli powder and mix well. Turn off the stove after a couple of minutes.
