Cluster Beans (Gavar) Chutney


Heat up some oil and lightly saute cumin, curry leaves, garlic and a couple of green chillies. Once fragrant add in coconut and the cluster beans. Cook covered if you are out of  time. But you can also cook open and stirring occasionally. These beans take a little longer to cook. To test if they are done, just eat a piece and check. That is the biggest advantage of cooking vegetarian dishes.  You can taste check at any point of time. Add salt as per taste.

Grind up some roasted peanuts and fried gram(optional) .

Combine everything with a little bit of tamarind pulp. Grind it coarse or smooth. Use a little water to get the right consistency.

Goes great with dosa, idly or hot rice with ghee.
