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.
Chikkudukayalu – 2cups
Tamarind pulp – 100gms
Red chilli powder – 100gms
Salt – to taste
Garlic pods – 4
Mustard seeds – 1tsp
Curry leaves – few
Oil – 4tsp
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.
