Beans Masala Curry(Dry Version)

Another session of blogging marathon has started and for this session I chose the dry vegetable sautee as theme. Today's recipe is a simple and interesting curry with beans which goes very well with rice and roti. We like to have this one as an accompaniment for rasam rice or any variety rice.
Here beans is available in a big pack in the farmers market and cannot consume it in a day.Whenever I buy beans make poriyal for a day and the remaining beans will be used for some variety rice and this dry curry.Now to the recipe.................


Onion(finely chopped1no.(medium size)
Curry leaves/karivepillai1sprig
Salta pinch
To grind 

Tomato1no.(small size_
Red chilly/varamilagai5-6nos.
Coriander powder/dhania podi2tsp
Fennel seeds/sombhu1tsp
Ginger/inji1/2inch piece
Garlic/poondu2-3 cloves
Cinnamon1/2inch piece
Poppy seeds/kasakasaa1/2tsp(optional)


                          Cut the beans diagonally to 1 inch piece and cook in the microwave for 3-4 minutes with little water,a pinch of salt.Grind the given ingredients to a fine paste with water.keep aside.
Start by heating a pan with oil and add the chopped onion,curry leaves.Saute it till transparent.Now add the ground paste and saute it till the raw smell disappears.
Rinse the mixie jar with 1/4cup of water and add it.Add the salt and let it boil for a minute.Then add the cooked the beans and mix it well.
Simmer it and keep it for 5 minutes or  till everything gets blended well and becomes dry.Finally add the coriander leaves and put off the stove.
Yummy yummy beans masala curry is ready.

  • Cooking the beans in the microwave reduces the entire cooking time,otherwise it needs to be added after the onion is done.After the beans cooked add the ground paste.
  • Adding the tomato is optional but gives a nice and tangy taste to the curry.
