Then, I called my mom and told her that SH has asked me to prepare Avarakkai poriyal. You please tell me how to prepare it. She laughed at me and told me that it is very easy and simple to prepare that dish and told me how to cook it. The other day, I prepared it and my SH was happy with it. Because of him only, am now buying avarakkai regularly. And now, my kiddo Amii is also not interested in avarakkai. One more SriLekha is forming!
|Avarakkai / Broad Beans||1/4 kg|
|Onion||1 (finely chopped)|
|Dry Red Chilly||3|
|Mustard Seeds||1/2 tsp|
|Broken Black Gram / Udaicha Ulutham Paruppu||1/2 tsp|
|Curry Leaf||1 or 2 sprig|
|Cooking Oil||1 tbsp|
Cut avarakkai into small pieces and pressure cook it by adding a cup of water and required amount of salt, for 3 whistles. Once the pressure is released, drain the excess water.
Heat oil in a pan and temper it with mustard seeds. Once it starts to crackle, add black gram and when it starts to change in color, add curry leaves and red chilly and add onion following it. When the onion becomes transparent and soft, add drained avarakkai and stir fry it till the water is completely absorbed. Transfer it to the serving bowl and serve it with hot rice.
