Goruchikkudu kaaram / Cluster beans curry

I learnt this from my co-sister when I visited her in India. So simple to make and with less oil. I call it as double dhamaaka as it is a mixer of two proteins, cluster bean and peanuts and both belongs to legume family. I have added a bit more chilli in order to suppress the sweetness of the peanuts.

Goruchikkudu kaaram

Cluster bean - 300 gms - tear them into 2 inch bits
Chilli - handful (Depending on your taste)
Tomato - 2
Onion - 1 thinly sliced
Oil - 2 tbsp
Cluster bean, Green chilli, sliced onion and tomato


Coarsely grind the raw peanuts
Coarsely ground peanuts

Coarsely grind green chilli and cluster beans by adding salt.

Heat a pan with oil. When it is hot enough, add sliced onion and fry for a minute. Now add chopped tomato and toss it once. After a minute add the ground chilli and cluster bean.

Mix everything and cook for 2 minutes by covering with lid.
Now add the ground peanuts, mix it and cook for 2 more minutes

Now add about 1 1/2 - 2 cups of water and cook until the cluster beans are well cooked.

You can have it with rice or roti. My choice is rice.
