I got this red bean from Korean market in NJ. I havent seen this fresh red beans in Indian stores.Back in India we make this curry using ‘butter beans’. Unlike this red bean it will be white in colour. It is used commonly in south part of Tamilnadu(Virudhunagar, Tuticorin etc). I have tried different varieties of beans to prepare this curry but only this red bean was similar to the taste of the butter beans. Here goes the recipe.
Red beans- 1 pack
Onions-1 finely chopped
Chilli powder- 1 tsp
Coconut gratings- 3 tsp
Saunf-1/2 tsp to
Khus khus-3/4 tsp
Curry leaves – few
Salt to taste
Pressure cook the red beans with salt for 1 whistle.
Grind coconut , saunf and khus khus into a fine paste.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When it splutters add onions and curry leaves. Saute till turns transparent and add the ground paste and chilli powder.saute for a minute and then add the cooked beans. Add salt to taste and add ¼ cup of water. Cook till it becomes thick and dry.
Serve hot with rice and sambar.
