Chikkudukaya(Indian broad beans) is one of the versatile vegetables which can be cooked with various combinations like tomato,Brinjal and goes well with rice or rotis.Here I tried to make pickle with Indian Broad beans.



  1. Chikkudukayalu – 2cups
  2. Tamarind pulp – 100gms
  3. Red chilli powder – 100gms
  4. Salt  – to taste
  5. Garlic pods – 4
  6. Mustard seeds – 1tsp
  7. Curry leaves – few
  8. Oil – 4tsp
  9. Menthigunda/Fenugreek powder – 1tsp


  • Wash and cut Chikkudukayalu into small pieces.
  • Heat  2 tsp of oil in pan,fry chikkudukayalu till the seeds are hard enough.Now mix tamarind pulp to the fried beans.To this add redchillipower,salt and Menthi gunda and mix well.
  • Finally heat another 2 tso of  oil in a pan,fry garlic pods , mustard seeds,curry leaves and add this to the above pickle and mix well.
  • This stays good for 15daysif stored in air tight container.


After cutting the Broad beans ,dry them on a paper towel so that there is less moisture.This helps the pickle to stay longer.
