Alasande Palya…Karnataka Style Long Yard Beans and the WINNER OF OCTOBER is..

DSC_0516
Hi everyone.
Days are passing by and we are kind of getting used to the city but still deep in my heart I long to go back and I keep praying almighty to help us on that.
This week has been terrible for me, all of a sudden I picked up a severe nerve pain in my right hand making me difficult to hold things, so cooking took a back seat. S was kind enough to take me out for dinner and we enjoyed eating Chinese Food at ‘The Cascade’.

I somehow managed to come out of the hand pain but my throat was hit. I am down with severe tonsillitis which has caused  fever as well as body pain. The weather here is playing hide and seek, we have rains followed by sunshine and then again the rains…I guess it is the change in temperature that caused an infection. I was getting extremely bored lying down as I am used to a more hectic lifestyle so I decided to post this simple dry curry which is an all time favourite with us.
This curry has been lying in my drafts for a long time and I actually wanted to post it in my other blog Kitchen- Basics as it’s a day to day curry and is easy to try for the beginners but with the current event on Curries going on in this month I decided to post it here.
It’s a quick curry to make and goes well with rice or roti accompanied by Jeerige Kattu. It is made by using the Palya Pudi ( traditional curry powder) which is red in colour and therefore it is also called red palya (dry curry) at my place. Long yard beans are a favourite with all of us and I cook it in many ways, one of which is this..
Ingredients (serves-4)
a large bunch of long yard beans chopped
2-3tbsp Palya Pudi
oil for cooking
salt to taste
1tsp mix of urad-chana daal/lentils
1/2tsp mustard seeds
Method
Wash the long yard beans thoroughly and pat dry with a clean kitchen towel.
Cut and remove the edges, now chop the beans.
Heat oil and mustard seeds, once the seeds splutter add the mixed lentils.
As you see the lentils turning golden in colour add turmeric powder followed by the chopped beans, mix well.
Season the curry with salt, mix well, cover and cook on low flame till half done,
Add the palya podi and mix again. Cover and cook till done.
