Hyacinth Beans Coconut Based Gravy Recipe

This is a typical Mangalorean style recipe which we call ‘Humman’. Potatoes, Navy beans or any lentils of choice can be used. Here I have used sprouted Hyacinth Beans/Val. The non vegetarians can replace it with Prawns. Best served with Rice.

Ingredients :

  • 250 gms sprouted Hyacinth Beans
  • 1 potato deskinned and cubed
  • Half of a large coconut grated
  • 12 roasted red chillies
  • 1 tbsp tamarind paste
  • Salt
  • A pea sized piece of Hing/asafoetida
  • 3 tbsps Parachute coconut oil

Method :

Cook the sprouted Hyacinth Beans along with the potato in salted water. Grind the coconut, asafoetida, roasted red chillies and tamarind to a smooth paste. Pour it into the cooked Beans, and potato mixture. Boil well and drizzle with Coconut oil.
