Besan Curry

This Sindhi staple is my mum's recipe. A quick and easy 'one pot' curry that goes great with rice and aloo gobi or bhindi masala

What you'll need..
  • 2 Tbsp besan (gram flour)
  • 1 Medium potato, cut into chunks
  • 1 Medium tomato, cut into chunks
  • 6-8 Whole bhindi (okra)
  • 2 Green chillies, chopped
  • 1/4 Tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 Tsp chilli powder
  • 1 Tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/4 Tsp methi seeds (fenugreek seeds)
  • 1/3 Cup Tamarind juice
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro leaves chopped
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • Salt to taste
How to..
  • Heat oil in a pressure cooker. Add cumin and fenugreek seeds to it and wait for them to splutter.
  • Add besan and fry on medium heat till it start to turn light brown. 
  • Add 2 cups water, tamarind juice, potato, tomato, green chilli, okra, turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt and mix well. 
  • Bring to a boil then cover with the lid and cook on high heat till you hear the first whistle. Then simmer on low heat for 15 minutes. 
  • Open the lid once all the steam has cooled. All the vegetables should be well cooked and the curry should be runny and not thick.
  • Mix in cilantro leaves and serve hot.
