This is a simple stir fry of Cluster Beans/ Mitke Sang /Gavar which is very popular with the Konkani community. The seasoning changes depending upon individual preference. I like mine with a dash of jaggery to tone down the slight bitterness of the vegetable.
- 300 gms Cluster Beans
- 4 dry red chillies broken into bits
- 2 tbsps Jaggery syrup
- 1 tbsp Coconut oil (choice of oil)
- 1 tsp Mustard
- 3 tbsps grated Coconut.
Snip both ends of the Cluster Beans. Wash and chop them fine. Heat oil in a pan. Drop in the mustard and after it splutters add the broken red chilly bits. Toss. Add the chopped cluster Beans, jaggery syrup and salt. Mix well. Pour in a glass of water and cook on a high flame till done. Garnish with coconut. Serve hot.
