GAVARICHI BHAJI (cluster beans vegetable)

Today I will be posting a simple vegetable which is made very regularly at my house
I love the taste of this vegetable, and I feel the combination of gavar (cluster beans) and moong (whole) or green peas go very well .You can add onions and garlic to enhance the taste and bring about some change in the recipe.
Cluster beans or gavar have the highest fiber content among all vegetables and prevent a rapid rise in blood sugar levels after a meal so it is a very healthy vegetable for diabetics.


    250 gms gavar
    ½ cup shelled green peas or whole moong (soaked and sprouted)
    1 tsp coriander-cumin powder or dhania jeera powder.
    2 green chilies
    ½ tsp chili powder
    a little turmeric or haldi powder.
    Mustard seeds,jeera,hing,curry leaves for tempering.
    1 tbsp grated coconut for garnishing
    1 tsp jaggery or gul
    salt to taste and oil for tempering.


    This is a very simple vegetable so the method is not elaborate .
    Cut gavar into 1 inch pieces
    Heat oil in a pan
    When hot add mustard seeds,jeera,hing,greenchillies and curry leaves
    Add moong which have been soaked and sprouted .
    add gavar vegetable.
    Add the remaining ingredients including the jaggery and salt.
    Let the vegetable cook then finally add grated coconut and give it a stir
    Your simple and tasty vegetable is ready.
