Chikkudukaaya Curry (Broadbeans Curry)
As my Husband is on business trip this entire week, I am not cooking anything elaborate these days and so I am preparing simple and easy dishes for me and clearing off the vegetables that I have in fridge.Believe me I am not spending more than half an hour in the kitchen for the entire day.Bread,Dosa(batter I prepared in a huge vessel),simple rice and sabzi,Maggi have become my daily food these days.I am sharing you one such simple chikkudukaaya sabzi that I have prepared recently.Even though it is bit time consuming,it does not require constant attention from us.
This is second entry to WYF-Side dishes by EC of Simple Indian Food.
250 gms chikkudukaaya/broad beans chopped thin
1 Big onion chopped
2 Tomatoes finely chopped
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp dhaniya powder
1/2 tsp jeera powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp Chana dal
1 tsp urad dal
8-10 curry leaves
1/2 tsp jeera
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
Heat Oil in a kadai,crackle mustard seeds and jeera and add chana dal,urad dal,curry leaves and fry until they turn red.
Add chopped onions and fry until golden brown,add chopped tomatoes and fry until it is slight mushy.
Add chopped broad beans/chikkudukaaya and give a good stir and cover it with a plate and pour water over it.keep it in low flame and cook for 15-20 mins giving a stir occasionally(It should be cooked completely with the steam produced by this process,eventhough it is time consuming it adds better taste to the curry).
Add red chilli powder,dhaniya powder,jeera powder,turmeric,salt and mix properly.
serve it hot with rice/roti.
