Cluster Beans Patoli Curry

Ingredients:
Cluster beans – 250 gms
Toor dal – 1 cup
Red chilli- 5-6 nos
Cumin – 1 tsp
Curry leaves few
Oil – 3 tbsp
Hing – A pinch
Salt as required

Method of Preparation:

  1. Cut and clean cluster beans into one inch pieces. Steam boil in a pressure cooker adding required amount of water for 3 whistles. Allow the cooker to cool.
  2. Soak the toor dal for 1 hr along with red chilli . Grind this to a smooth paste along with cumin seeds and salt
  3. Place a kadai/wok on stove. After a minute pour 3 tbsp oil . Add curry leaves, hing, boiled cluster beans and ground paste.
  4. Cook on low flame for 20-25 min till the mixture and beans look blended. Stir the curry only occasionally.
  5. Transfer it to serving bowl and garnish with curry / coriander leaves.

Tip :

  1. Cluster beans should not be overcooked.
  2. Here I used toor dal for the curry. Instead of that you can use channa dal. And in place of cluster bean we can use French beans, drumstick, snake guard too.
  3. Instead of cumin seeds (jeera) we can use Saunf/Sompu (Fennel Seeds).
