Beans Nei Thuvattal

Beans nei thuvattal is another different variety of beans curry. I came across this recipe in my Sister in laws’ blog and wanted to try it. Basically I hate beans curry. But on seeing the photo of this recipe in her blog,  I got tempted and made this at home. I made slight differences by avoiding garlic and frying the ground powder in ghee.  The aroma of this recipe is obvious while making this recipe. I loved this curry. And she asked me to eat it mixed with the plain rice adding  ghee to it. And that was the first day I ate half the quantity of beans made at home. Yes!!!! the curry is super yummy.


Beans – 2 cups

Channa dhal – 2 tbsp

Roasted gram dhal – 2 tbsp

Urad dhal – 2 tbsp

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Red chilli powder – 1 tsp

Ghee – 1 tbsp

Salt – To taste


  • Dry roast channa dhal, urad dhal, roasted gram dhal and grind it to a fine powder.
  • Mix turmeric powder and red chilli powder with the above ground powder.
  • Wash and cut the beans to 1 inch length. Add enough water and cook it with salt.
  • Drain the excess water  and keep it aside.
  • In a kadai, add a tbsp of ghee and fry the ground powder for a minute. You will get a nice aroma.
  • Mix the cooked beans with the fried powder and toss it.
  • Serve it with rice. I loved to eat the curry just mixed with the rice with little ghee adding to it. It was super yummy..(Of course it is my Sister-in-laws’ idea).
