Zaatari Gavar Bhaji (Cluster Beans Curry with Zaatar Masala)

           This time I decided to try another way of preparing Gavar vegetable (cluster beans). So I went ahead and made it in the Mediterranean style, adding zaatar spice mix. It tasted completely different from our usual curries. In other words, it was awesome. Have it with some chapattis or parathas.

  • 400 gms. Gavar (cluster beans), chopped into 1" pieces
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. garlic, chopped
  • 1-2 green chilies, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. red chili powder
  • 1 tbsp. zaatar spice mix
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. coriander leaves

          Steam the gavar till soft. Keep aside. Heat oil in a pan and temper with cumin seeds. Then add the onion, garlic and green chilies and fry till the onions turn translucent.

          Now add the gavar, salt, turmeric powder, red chili powder and saute on low flame for 2-3 mintes. Add the zaatar spice mix and lime juice and mix well.

          Take it off the fire after a minute and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve as a side dish with any Indian bread.
