Wash and soak the double beans overnight. Drain the water, add enough water to immerse the beans in the pressure cooker.

Add enough salt and pressure cook for 3 whistles and switch off the stove. After the steam releases, drain the water and keep the cooked bean aside.

Add coriander seeds, red chillies, black pepper, cumin seeds, garlic and coconut to the mixer.

Grind everything to powder as shown.

Heat oil in a kadai, splutter mustard seeds, urad dal and fry until the dal changes to beautiful golden yellow color.

Add curry leaves and fry until they turn crispy.

Add onions and saute well until they turn golden brown color.

Add ginger & garlic paste and saute well until the raw smell vanishes.

Add turmeric powder and mix well.

Add the cooked double beans and saute well for about 2-3 minutes.

Now add the ground masala powder to the beans and give a good stir.

Sprinkle little water and mix really well, cook on low flame until the masala is well combined and all the water is evaporated. Keep stirring to avoid the beans from burning.

Fry till the masala turns to golden brown color and nice aroma fills the room. Finally add 1-2 tsp of gingelly oil/ground nut oil to the bean and mix really well and switch off the stove.

Yes, delicious, flavourful and healthy Double Beans Fry/Curry is ready to be enjoyed. 

Serve it as side dish for South Indian Lunch or with simple rasam sadam, sambar sadham or even with Thayir sadham.
