Cluster Beans Fry w Chana Flour | Goruchikkudu w Senagapindi

It is very rarely that I eat cluster beans. I know that they are good for health and all that, but somehow haven’t gotten around to liking them. Still, I eat them once in a while. To make this vegetable more tasty and interesting, I tried out this recipe and it turned out well. It was a good combination with white rice and everyone at home enjoyed eating this curry. You must try it too……

* This recipe was given by my paternal aunt. She is a good cook and some of my veg fry recipes here are what she has told me about years ago. Now and then, I keep referring to her recipe notes to make the vegetable curries.

The other recipe she told me about is the Cluster Beans Masala Curry which has potato with tomato and onion masala pressure cooked to perfect yumminess.


Cluster beans or Goruchikkudu – ¼ kg.
Onion – 1, chopped
Green chillies – 2 or 3
Ginger – 1 cm. piece
