This a very tasty chilli fry, you will not find the bitterness of the vaal at all. In this dish I used bottle masala which is readily available in supermarkets or cold storage outlets. H is not very fond of Vaal. When I served him this dish he loved the taste of it.
1 Cup Kadve Vaal -sprouted and cleaned
1 Medium Potato - sliced in quaters
3 Medium Onions - sliced
2 Green chillies - sliced
1 Small Tomato - sliced
1/2 + 1/2 Teaspoon Bottle Masala
1 Tablespoon Coriander - finely chopped
2 Tablespoons Oil
Salt to taste.
To sprout the vaal soak the beans for 4 hours. Then put the beans in a cotton cloth and keep it in a dark place to sprout. After a day the bean will sprout. Place these beans in warm water for an hour and the skin will loosen . Peel the skins and keep the vaal aside (see pic).
Boil the vaal and potatoes with a pinch of salt, 1/2 cup water and 1/2 teaspoon bottle masala till the vaal is cooked. Dry all the water.
In a pan heat oil add the onions and fry till translucent add the green chillies and tomato, and fry or a minute add the boiled vaal and potato, 1/2 bottle masala and salt to taste fry well for 5 minutes on slow fire. stirring lightly. When done add chopped coriander and serve hot with rotis, bhakris or as a side dish with rice and dal.
Give this a try and you will definitely love it.
