Mochai Sundal | Hyacinth Bean or Field bean Salad

>>  Friday, September 24, 2010

Since having started back on a diet, thought having some salads in the evening will help. A while ago father in law had got these dried Anapa kayalu and its been with us. We normally make a kurma with it for Dosas. Athamma had soaked these in hopes of making something with it. Finally she said a salad will be much more better for the evening.

So this is how it ended up. With simple saute of onions, tomatoes, it can surely elevate to a different level! Best part being that this is liked by the boys too. Then enjoy eating these lentils provided we remove all other things that go in. Well to gain some you got to lose some!


Mochai Sundal | Hyacinth Bean or Field bean Salad 

Mochai - 1 cup
Onions - 1 medium
Tomato - 1 medium
Green Chili - 2 medium, chopped into fine pieces
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves - few
Mustard seeds, Urad dal - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tsp

Method to prepare:

Wash and soak the dried dal overnight. Pressure cook with very little water till soft.

Drain the water, keep it aside

Heat a non stick pan with oil. Add mustard seeds, Urad dal, curry leaves and onions. Saute will till the onions turn colour.

Then add chopped tomatoes, saute for 2 mins. Then add the cooked beans. Stir every thing well.

What other dishes do you make with Mochai?

Now that 'the boys liked it' is testimonial in itself Valli. And they only wanted the onions and such removed...soon that will be overcome too.
That is one really filling snack that a dieter will be able relish and not turn to other Calorie laden nibbles!
