Avare Kaalu Fry

Avare Kaalu(Lilva Bean) has another use in making a starter dish Avare Kaalu fry which goes well with cocktails, mocktails and juices. When I was in Bangalore there was this Ramda Pub on Church Street Museum Road junction where they served Green Peas Fry with drought beer. I liked it so much, I tried cooking the snack at home and succeeded.

Last year, when we got Avare Kaalu in abundance from Mysore, I tried Avare Kaalu Fry using the same recipe. Very tasty, easy to make, healthy, low on fat, full of proteins and vitamins. I recommend this dish to all the lovers of Avare Kaalu.

Avare Kaalu - 1 Cup boiled with little salt
Oil - 1 Tsp
Curry leaves - A few
Onion - 1 chopped or thinly sliced
Garlic - 4-6 cloves chopped
Green chillies - 2 Chopped
Salt and pepper powder
Turmeric Powder - A pinch(Optional)
Ginger - 1 inch piece chopped(Optional)
Lemon - 1/2
Coriander leaves - A handful chopped

Heat oil in a pan. Add curry leaves, chopped green chillies, chopped garlic and sliced onions. Fry till onion slices are transparent.
Add optional turmeric powder and chopped ginger followed by the boiled avare kaalu. Fry well
Add salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle little water if necessary cover and cook till a nice aroma emanates from the cooked avare kaalu.
Switch off the flame, squeeze lemon, sprinkle chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with choice of drinks.
You may also try this as a side dish with rice and curry.
