Dalimbi Usal - 2

This is one of the simplest usaL as you do not have to chop any onion or garlic or chilies. Of course sprouting and peeling vaals is the laborious task. But it is worth it if you love the unique taste of it.

Bitter Field Beans Stir Fry
3 cups kadu vaal sprouts
1/2 - 1 tsp chili powder (or per taste)
salt to taste
1/2 tbsp jaggery

2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp asafoetida
1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1 tbsp fresh coconut
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves/cilantro, chopped

1. Heat oil in a deep bottomed saucepan or kadai.
2. Add the ingredients for tempering.
3. as they sizzle, add vaal sprouts and 1 cup water.
4. Bring to boil. Cover and let it cook for about 15 -20 minutes till the vaals are cooked but not mushed.
5. Add salt and jaggery. Let the water evaporate completely or keep some for gravy like consistency.
6. Garnish with coconut.

Note -
1. While vaal sprouts are being cooked, check in between to make sure that the water is not already evaporated. In that case, add more water for cooking vaals.
