Goruchikkudu Fry / Cluster Beans

My mom has come for a holiday here for a month and she is the one who is doing cooking.For few days till she is here i will be posting her delicious recipes.Goruchikkudu fry is the one of the favourite fries of hers which we relish much.I love the addition of tur dal and fresh coconut.It's been long i didn't eat this fry,so i made it a point that this fry is the first recipe which I will be posting on my blog.Here comes the fry.......
Goruchikkudu/Cluster beans/Guar 1/2 kg (chopped)
Tur dal 1/2 cup
Onion 1 (chopped)
Fresh coconut 1/4 cup (grated)
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Red chilly powder 1/4 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Oil 4 tbsp
Rai few
Udad dal few
Red chilly (whole) 2
How to make:-
*Soak tur dal for 1 hour.
*Cook tur dal until it is half cooked.
*Add beans and cook till beans are half cooked and then add salt and cook for another 2mins.
*Squeeze out water with hands.
*Heat oil in a kadai,add the seasoning and when they splutter add onions.
*Once onions are brown in colour add the cooked beans,tur dal and turmeric powder.
*Fry till the beans are dry.

Serve it with rice/roti.I sometime eat this like snacks.
