Green Hyacinth Bean Gravy

     I love the tamil month "Thai". Wondering why telling suddenly, its because of the peak season of Green Hyacinth Bean or Pachai Mochai. When this month comes, you can see this bean on road side of many villages where people will sold it for cheap rate. I love the raw smell of this bean, think my craziness towards it when it is cooked. My grandpa, use to buy this in big jute bag during season time. This is my Grand ma's favorite recipe which she used to prepare in many forms. Some are listed below

    1. As we outer skin is not edible, my grand ma use to steam the bean and the inner bean portion is edible whereas the outer skin is thrown away. As we prepare using Groundnut. This we use to have it as evening snack.
    2. She soak only the inner bean by taking out fron the green outer layer and soak it overnight and further remove the outer thin layer of the soaked bean and make a gravy for rotis which is called as "Pithukam parupu Kuzhambu"
    3. Boil the inner bean, and she will make as a gravy which can kept for hot steamed rice and to Roti as well. This is the gravy which am planned to showcase it today.


INGREDIENTS
Boiled green hyacinth Bean - 1 cup
Chopped onion - 2 Nos.
Chopped Tomato - 1 No.
Fennel Seeds - 1 spoon
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Coriander Powder - 1 spoon
Chilly/Sambar Powder - 1 1/2 spoon
Turmeric Powder - Pinch
Salt - To taste
Oil - To garnish
Cinnamon - 1/4 inch
Cloves - 4 Nos.

METHOD:
     Grind the grated coconut along with fennel seeds & corainder powder and keep aside. Keep a pan. Heat a spoon of oil. Add cinnamom, cloves, chopped onion, saute it for 5 mins and then add tomato. Fry it. Add turmeric powder, sambar powder and pinch of salt. Fry it till the oil oozes out. Then add boiled bean and fry it with the masala. Then add grinded coconut powder, add required salt and water. Allow it to boil until the raw smell of coconut & coriander smell goes off. Now taste with hot steamed rice or roti. Grand ma's recipe always ROCKs !!

     Sending this to the event - "HITS" in Sangee Vijay's space.


Note:Can also make it as thick gravy to keep it as Roti side dish.
