This side is prepared with green beans, green gram and sambar powder. This can be served with rice.


  • Beans – 100 gm

  • Green Gram (Pachai Payaru) – 1/2 cup

  • Sambar Powder – 1 teaspoon

  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon

  • Salt – 1 teaspoon or as per taste

  • Oil – 1 teaspoon

  • Mustard – ½ teaspoon

  • Urad Dhal – 1 teaspoon

  • Asafoetida Powder – a pinch

  • Coconut Gratings – 2 tablespoons

  • Curry leaves – few


  • In a dry frying pan add the Green Gram and fry till its colour changes to light brown.
  • Soak it for six to eight hours (or overnight). Wash well and add just enough water to cover it and a pinch of salt. Pressure cook it for two to three whistles.
  • Chop beans to 1″ pieces.
  • In a frying pan add the oil and when it is hot add mustard.
  • When the mustard pops up add urad dhal, asafoetida powder and curry leaves and fry till the urad dhal become light brown.
  • Then add beans pieces along with turmeric powder, sambar powder, salt and sprinkle two to three handful of water and stir well.
  • Cover with a lid and cook on medium flame till beans are soft.
  • Take out the cooked green gram from the pressure cooker and drain out the excess water. Add the cooked gram to beans and mix well.
  • Finally add coconut gratings and stir once again.


  • You can use Green Gram without frying also.  Just soak the green gram and prepare this recipe as above.
