Double/Butter Beans Curry

Usually i soak a huge quantity of variety beans and freeze them in zip lock bags, which is quite handy while making out dishes with beans.. I have soaked and freezed a bag of butter beans long back, may be a month ago..After making out kurmas and pulaos with those frozen beans, there were some leftover beans which i dont want to make out again gravies and went through searching by browsing for a different dish, then only i remembered that i have bookmarked long back double beans curry at Rak's space, immediately i went through that simple but delicious curry and prepared them immediately by pressure cooking those frozen butter beans..This curry is very simple, quick and prefect side dish for simple rasam or sambar, i enjoyed having them just like sundal..Thanks to Raji for sharing this delicious and elegant curry..

Butter beans curry

1cup Butter beans (soaked & pressure cooked)
1no Onion (chopped)
2pinch Turmeric powder
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Urad dal
Few curry leaves
Salt

To Grind:
1tbsp Coriander seeds
3tbsp Grated coconut

  14. Priya, I loved the idea of soaking beans and then freezing it. That is such a easy way for whenever we want to make these beans. Because usually if i want to make some, i will have to soak them overnight, etc. So, thanks for this tip.

  35. Priya, this is one the more traditional 'masala' combinations we use with vegetables and chicken/mutton; the flavour of coriander predominates and we also use black-eyed peas among other vegetables.
