Beans Sesame Curry (Beans Nuvvulapodi curry)

What I used:

Green beans : 1 cup (cut into 1" pieces)
Nuvvulapodi / Sesame Powder : 3 tbsp
Red chilli powder : 1 tsp or as required
Salt : as required
Urad dal : 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds : 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds : 1/2 tsp
Red chillies : 1 (broken into small bits)
Turmeric powder : a pinch
Oil : 1 tbsp

How I did:
  • Take bean pieces in a microwavable bowl, add some water and microwave for 5 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and do the tadka (add urad dal, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and red chilli pieces).
  • Drain the water from the beans and add to the kadai when the seeds crackle.
  • Sprinkle salt and turmeric powder and cook covered till the beans are done.
  • Finally add the sesame powder and red chilli powder.  While adding chilli powder, keep in mind that sesame powder also contains some red chillies in it.
  • Serve with plain rice.
