This is one more excellent side dish for any sambar. But I like it to have as a gravy with rice. Usually on a rainy day, my mom will surely prepare this porial, rasam and hot rice. She mix the hot rice with this porial and feed us even when i was doing my college. I love my mom's mixing as she will add a little more salt and it would be nice to have from mom's hand always.
Lets get into the recipe.
Broad Beans (Avarakkai) - 500 gms
Pearl Onion - 10
Tomato - 1 small
Sambar Powder - 2-4 tsp
Salt - as Required
Mustrad and urad dhal for seasoning.
Coconut - 3 tbsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Grind the items to grind to a smooth paste.
Heat a kadai and add 1 tsp of oil.
Add the seasoning items and then the onion. Once the onion is soft, add the tomatoes and then the minced avarakkai.
Saute for a awhile and then add the sambar powder, turmeric powder and salt.
Sprinkle some water and close with a lid. Saute in between til the veg is done.
Once the veg is cooked well, add the ground paste. Mix well and switch off the stove.
you can have it as a side dish with sambar or else directly with white rice.
