Butter beans dry curry

One of my favorite veggie. Easy to cook and yummy to eat. My mom used to prepare an “avial” with this chunky lentil along with few soft vegetables. Yet to learn that recipe from my mom.

Learnt this recipe from my mother-in-law. She used bag me kgs of butter beans while we go back after our vacation as I like this veggie very much, thanks Athai.


Butter beans (fresh) – 2 cups
Cooking oil – 4 tbs
Turmeric powder – ¼ tbs
Red chilli powder – 1 ½ tbs
Coriander powder – ½ tbs
Salt to taste
Fresh coconut paste – 2 tbs (optional)


Heat oil in a pressure cooker. Wash and add the butter beans and stir fry for a min. Add all powders, salt, coconut paste + 1 cup of water (or water till the beans level). Cook for 3 whistles. Sprinkle chopped cilantro and serve hot.
