Beans Talimpu

Fresh tender beans talimpu with hot rice is a perfect combination. There are a lot of ways in which beans talimpu can be made. Today I made using roasted chana dal/putnala pappu, the same way my mom makes at home.

Beans - 1 pound (appx 1/2 kilo) (chopped and steamed)
Onions - 1 medium sized, roughly chopped
Shredded coconut - 2 tbsp(preferably fresh)
Grind to Powder:
Roasted Chana Dal/Putnala Pappu - 1/2 cup
Chilli Powder - 1 tbsp
Garlic - 1, roughly chopped
Salt - 1/2 tsp
For the Tempering:
Oil - 2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - 4-5

Method of Preparation:
1. Heat oil in a pan and mustard seeds, cumin seeds, urad dal, curry leaves. Once the seeds splutter add the onions and fry till the onions become translucent.
2. Add the steamed beans and some salt. Cook for 5 minutes
3. Add the shredded coconut and the roasted chana dal powder, mix well, adjust the salt and cook for 5 more minutes.
4. Serve the beans talimpu with warm rice or rotis.
