LongBeans and Sprouted Kadalekaalu palya &Awards

Sprouted Hasiru(green) kadalekaalu (chana) is a rich source of B series of vitamins. It has been ages since I feasted on fresh green chana available in India. There were days when we waited to see fresh green chana in markets. I don't exactly remember which month of the year we saw them in abundance, but they tasted awesome! Avarekaalu (surti papdi) dishes galore between the months of Dec-Jan, green chana dishes rock the menu when they are available in the market. I was able to find dried green chana in Mustafa after a loooong time. I happily bought 2kilos!!! I adore all types of beans and I remember to make them atleast once a week.

This is a simple vegetable using yard long beans (alasande beans/karamani) and sprouted hasiru kadalekaalu (green chana).

You need the following to make them :
Yard Long Beans : 3 cups (washed and chopped)
Sprouted Hasiru Kadalekaalu : 1/2 cup (green chana)
I have steamed both of them separately till they are fork tender.

To blend :
Dry Coconut Powder/shavings/peel : 2tbsp
Guntur chillies/Red Chillies : 3 (adjust according to your taste)
Jeerige/Cumin: 1tsp
Dry roast red chillies on a hot pan till they are crisp. In the same pan fry cumin for few seconds.
Cumin will turn brown and bitter if they are over roasted. Please be careful while roasting cumin.
Blend all the above to make a fine powder and keep the powder ready.

Tampering :
Oil : 1tbsp
Mustard: 1/4 tsp
kadalebele/chanadal: 1tsp
Uddinabele/Urad dal: 1tsp
Curry leaves : from 1 line

How to make :
Heat oil in a pan/woke/... When oil is hot add mustard. When mustard stops spluttering, add chanadal when they start changing their color add urad dal. Fry both till they are golden brown. Add curry leaves and steamed vegetables follow the row. Give a nice stirr. Sprinkle the dry coconut n chilli powder over it and stir and fry for next 1-2 min. Switch off the gas. Cover it with a lid and set it aside for 5-10 mins before you serve/till falvors settle down. You may like to garnish with chopped coriander before serving. I served them with rice.
