There’s something so unique about the Indian cuisine— the rich spices and herbs; the perfect balance of flavors, and the smoky, misty aroma that exudes from every delicacy making it so refreshingly different. Gawaar sabzee has to be a perfect specimen of the traditional Indian culinary art; the way it manages and uses the bitterness of gawaar (cluster beans) to make a dish so unique is indeed remarkable. The earthy flavors of the gawaar sabzee will leave you mesmerized for sure!

Gawaar cooked with gram and potato including of course the tomatoes and green chili is a complete dish when eaten with curds and chapati. Gawaar beans have a lot of soluble fiber and are rich in a number of vitamins and minerals.

How to make Gawaar Sabzee

  • Wash the gawaar well with water and drain. Cut into medium pieces. Wash and peel the potato and cut into medium size thin slices. Again, wash potato thoroughly after peeling and cutting.
  • Boil chana in a pressure cooker for ten minutes until soft. Do not boil in the water used for soaking overnight. Discard the water and boil in fresh water.
  • To a cooking pan or karhai on medium flame, add mustard oil and heat. Lower the flame and add cumin seeds until it crackles.
  • Add sliced onions and fry till slightly golden. Add ginger garlic paste and stir-fry. Add the gawar and potato and stir-fry for few minutes, till the vegetables get cooked.
  • Add tomato, green chilies, turmeric powder, red chili powder, cumin powder, and coriander powder. Stir and mix well, cover the lid, cook while simmering and stir in between. When tomato turns pulpy add the safed chana. It is better not to add the safed chana much earlier as these are already soft after boiling.
  • Stir well and cook with a little water for a few minutes to acquire a thick gravy consistency before turning off the gas knob.
