Double Beans Curry / Masal

Double Beans is my favorite, but we dont get fresh ones often so buy it whenever I see in palamuthir nilayam. I've tried dried ones too which is readily available in most of the supermarkets but fresh ones are even more tasty. More than kuzhambu this curry is our family favorite.
Double Beans Curry Recipe

Ingredients:
Fresh Double beans - 3/4 cup
Onion - 1 chopped finely
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt - as required
Oil - 1.5 tsp

To grind for the spice powder :
Coconut - 3 tbsp
Red chillies - 1
Garlic - 3 to 4 flakes
Pepper - 1 tsp
Dry roast one by one for a minute and grind to a dry powder

For Tempering
Pattai - 1/4 inch piece
Krambu - 1
Curry leaves - few
(or)
Mustard Seeds
Jeera
Curry leaves - few

Some dont like the masala flavour in their curry so they can use the 2nd tempering option. I like both ways :)


Double Beans Curry Recipe
Method:
  1. Pressure cook the double beans for 4 to 5 whistles. If you are using dried double beans then soak it overnight and then pressure cook it.

  2. Heat oil in a pan, add the 'to temper' items according to ur taste either cloves, cinnamom or jeera mustard. Then add curry leaves and chopped onions saute till its lightly browned.

  3. Now add pressure cooked double beans, add turmeric and sambar powder fry for 3mins till the masalas are blend with the beans.

  4. Then add the grinded spice powder and mix well. Sprinkle little water, keep closed and simmer it for 2mins.When water is completely evaporated, stir well till beans is roasted well and the masalas are nicely browned. Switch off and serve with sambar or curd rice.
