This recipe is not made at my home ; but learnt from friends and bloggers. I like Beans made this way, different from usual stir fry with coconut.
Chopped Beans 1 ¾ cups
Channa Dhal or Kadalai Paruppu ¼ cup
Dried Red Chillies 1-2
Pearl Onions 3
Cumin ¾ tsp
Mustard ½ tsp
Curry Leaves few
Soak channa Dhal for one hour and drain. Peel and chop Pearl Onions. Cut Beans into very fine pieces.
Grind drained Channa Dhal, Chillies and Cumin to a coarse paste.
Heat Oil in a Pan. When hot, add Mustard seeds. When they complete crackling, add Pearl Onions and Curry leaves.
When onions turn slightly brown, add ground paste. Fry for a while and then add chopped Beans & Salt.
Cook till done.
Serve with Rice and Sambar or any Kuzhambu.
Sangeetha of Typical Indian Cooking was the first one to share her awards with me. If someone remembers you on a happy occasion and wants to share something they own, will you not be happy?? I was really happy that day.
Few days later (or few months, I don’t remember), I was awarded with the bunch of Awards from one of my friend, Sobha of Good Food. I was really happy. But the rule was to send to 15 more bloggers. To my surprise, all of my blogger friends had all or some of the awards I received. Finding new bloggers in this blogosphere is very easy, but I hesitated as how can I award them as soon as I come to know them. I was not okay with that.
When I was thinking what to do or ask some of my blogger friends, I received the same awards from another friend Mugdha. Ahhhhhh!!! I started breaking my head.
I am not complaining anyone. Thanks for your awards. But I cannot ignore those awards nor receive them. I was more embarrassed. I was uncertain how to reciprocate or what to give back. Is just a Thanks okay?
It came to my mind one day (Thank God!!), why I can’t prepare my own awards for them and also to some of my other blogger friends. I created a rule to myself; I must find out what is best in them and create accordingly.
I am not good in Paintshop, but did my level best to please you. This is just a token of love that you have showed upon me.
