Low Fats Flat Beans Curry Mom's Style

Low Fats Flat Beans Curry Mom's Style

This is a Super Delicious Side Dish For Rice Roti and also Dosa

Seasonal veggies bloom so well during winters, and they taste the best. Among Which Flat beans is available freely in the market these days. Mom makes sure she brings seasonal Fruits and Veggies as and when available. Though I had never shown much interest in what mom cooks, But yea after blogging I make sure I learn from her as well and document it, As I forget things so easily unless and until I myself make it 3-4 times minimum :D

So I was just watching mom as she made, Finally I questioned her, How much gms beans are u using? She gave me a frowned look saying why do u ask in gms? Is it gold? veggies are noted by kg, this is half kg beans, I then said arey mummy Half kg = 500gms. Likewise I cannot stop asking her questions when she is cooking and she gets irritated :P Some of ther actions has no reasons :D hehe

Coming back to the recipe It takes 10mins cooking time only so its a quick fix kind.

Ingredients
Flat beans - 500gms
Moong daal - half cup
Onion - 1 large chopped
Coriander leaves - 2 tbspn
GG paste - 1tsp
Turmeric -  1/4th tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp heaped
Coriander powder - 1tsp
Tomato - 1 chopped
Salt to taste
Oil - 1tbsp

Method:
- In cooker add oil, once it is heated add onion and saute for a min
- Next add ginger garlic paste, all the dry spices, tomatoes and coriander leaves and saute it nicely till it start emmiting nice aroma.
- Now add daal and chopped flat beans + 2cups water and pressure cook for 1 whistle
- Tan ta daaaannn We r Done :)


This is how it looked when I opened the pressure cooker lid after the pressure dropped!! Looks Kool na??? :D

This recipe is so simple I dont have much notes to write but still
Notes:
- You can always adjust the spices according to your taste.
- In case you find the curry watery, feel free to cook in high flame for 5 more mins till water evaporates.
- Little bit of water is ok, it will get thicken with the daal as it cools down (you can see the 1st pic you can see little water content around the saucer, This was because I clicked the pic as soon as it was cooked!! This water content was absorbed as soon as it cooled down)



This recipe can be made with chicken prawns too. This should be added when we r sauteing onion tomato mixture, before adding daal and flat beans. This will taste more yummier than just veggie. 

If you try out do let us know how it turned for you

Till then Bubye

Yours Loving 
Aara!!
