I made a simple curry was very flavorful. We had these with rotis and dal for dinner.
Sem beans in mustard gravy
(Somehow this dish always reminds me of my Aaji (grandma). She used to make this a lot with mustard seeds powder.
2 tbsp oil
1 onion , 1 tomato - chopped
1 medium potato, boiled, peeled and cubed
Salt to taste
1 tsp each Turmeric powder, coriander powder and all spice / garam masala
Sem beans - 250 grams, tops and tails removed, threaded (side strings removed) and chopped into pieces
1 large tbsp mustard seeds powder
1/4 cup water
Heat oil in a wok. Add cumin for tempering, add onions and stir fry until lightly browned. Add tomatoes, salt, mix well. Cook till the raw smell disappears and add all spices and cubed potato. Let cook for a min. Add the chopped beans, fry for a couple of mins, cook covered. Add msutard seeds powder and cook covered for another couple of mins, stirring occasionally.Add water, cover and let the beans cook in this water. I let the water dry up cos that's how I like it.
