Mochai Pattani Poriyal / Hyacinth Beans Peas Dry Curry

This simple curry with sambar is my any time comfort lunch. Sometimes when I am lazy, this mochai pattani curry alone with curd rice will be my lunch :) This is very easy and quick to fix up for a lunch.

And the updating issue is still there...I am trying ways to solve it but all in vain. Googling doesnt help either :(

Ingredients:
  • Mochai - 1/2 cup
  • Peas - 1/2 cup
  • Oil - 1tbsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1tsp
  • Onion - 1 medium sized
  • Coriander leaves - 1tbsp

  • Sombu podi(Aniseed powder) - 1/2 tsp
Mochai Pattani Poriyal Recipe
Method:
  1. Pressure cook mochai and peas with enough water. They should only be half cooked not mushy.The number of whistles for pressure cooking depends on the variety of beans and peas either frozen or fresh.

  2. Heat oil in a kadai, add mustard seeds allow it to splutter.Now add onions, green chillies and crushed garlic. Fry till onions are light browned.

  3. Add boiled peas and mochai to it and mix well. Now add sambar,aniseed, chilli powder and mix well. Add salt to taste.

  4. Sprinkle water and cook with lid closed for 5mins. By now the masalas would have coated well with the veggies.

  5. Turn over and stir once. Allow it to get roasted a little for 2-3mins.Switch off and garnish with coriander leaves.
NOTE : If its fresh beans and peas then 1 whistle would be enough if its frozen it will take around 5-7 whistles, take care not to make them mushy.
