Spicy Oily Broad Beans Poriyal

One of the special dishes for vegetarians..

While making this poriyal I was wondering ..Can broad beans be cooked this much spicy?!


Broad Beans (Avaraikkaai) - 200 gms
Small onion - around 15
Tomato - 1
Garlic - 2 cloves
Corriander powder - 2 tablespoon
Red chili powder - 3 teaspoon
Oil - 1/4 cup
Seasoning - Mustard seeds, Urad dal, cumin, curry leaves
Salt - as needed

  • Add oil for seasoning to a frying pan; season with mustard seeds, urad dal, cumin and curry leaves.
  • Add finely chopped onions and saute well till they get golden brown.
  • Add finely chopped tomato and saute well.
  • Add the remaining oil to the pan and let it get heated for a while.
  • Add finely chopped broad beans and saute well till the raw smell goes off.
  • Add red chili powder, corriander powder, salt and saute well.
  • Add little water and cover the pan; keep sauting in between.
  • When the broad beans get cooked well, add crushed garlic and saute well.
