Beans - Carrot Curry with Sesame Powder



Here is a delicious, carrot - beans dry saute for my "accompaniment" theme of BM#15. This is a typical Andhra style preparation and is a nice variation from the regular rut of coconut / onion based curries.

Ingredients:
1 cup stringed and chopped beans
1 cup peeled and cubed carrot
Salt to taste
For tadka:
1 tbsp oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 tsp urad dal / split black gram, 1 tsp chana dal, few curry leaves, 1/8 tsp turmeric powder
For sesame seed powder:
1 Tbsp white sesame seeds, 2 Tbsp dry coconut, 4 dried red chillies and 1 tbsp jaggery powder

Method:
* Toast sesame seeds and chillies on medium flame until the sesame seeds start to pop. It will take a few seconds to toast sesame seeds and so keep an eye on them. Let cool and grind into a fine powder along with coconut and jaggery.
* Heat oil in a pan and add the tadka ingredients. When dals start turning reddish, add the vegetables, salt and turmeric powder to the pan. Cook covered on low flame until the beans turn tender.
* Add the sesame seed powder to the cooked vegetables, stir well and cook for a couple of minutes more. Turn off the stove and serve the warm curry along with rice / rotis.

Good one. I make this for my kids so I omit the red chillies and add a pinch of red chilli powder.
