This is yet another recipe prepared during all occasions. I had earlier posted the recipe for Broad Beans Palya. Just replace the broad beans with beans and you have another authentic dish. However, I will post the recipe here as well.
- 1 lb beans( Washed and finely chopped as shown below)
- 4 tsp freshly grated coconut
- 2-3 sprigs of cilantro finely chopped for garnishing.
- 1 tsp oil, 1/2 tsp mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp urad dal, 1/2 tsp channa dal, pinch of hing, 1/2 tsp haldi, and 2 red chiilies
- Salt to taste.
Finely chop the beans as shown below.
Pressure cook the beans for 2 whistles with little water ( 2 tsp).
In a pan, heat oil. Add all the above ingredients like mustrad seeds, haldi, urad dal, chaana dal, hing, red chillies. Fry for a minute or two until the dals turn red.
Next, add the cooked beans. Fry for another few minutes. Add salt, coconut. In most Madhwa houses we add 1/2 tsp sugar or Jaggery to the playa at this point. But, its entirely optional. Garnish with Cilantro.
