Avarekaalu Usli

A 'must-do' side dish for chapathi during avarekaalu season. It is simple to cook and to eat ;) too.

You need the following to make Avarekaalu Usli :

Avarekaalu : 1 big cup, (deseeded beans) (surti papdi, green hyacinth beans)
Onion : 2 (chopped length wise)
Ginger : 2 " piece, thinly sliced
Green Chillies : 5
Lemon Juice : from 1 lemon (small lemon)
Oil (1tsp), mustard, curry leaves, turmeric (1 pinch)


1.Heat oil in a cooker pan. When it is hot add mustard seeds. Once it stops poping, add curry leaves, green chillies, ginger and sautee for a minute. Add chopped onion and fry till onion changes color.
2. Add deseeded avarekaalu, water and salt. Bring to boil. Check for salt, adjust if required. Close the cooker lid and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
3. When pressure comes down, open the cooker lid and add lemon juice. Give a good stir. Serve with chapathi/paratha.
