Cabbage goruchikudukaaya kura/Cabbage and Cluster beans curry

Surprisingly this is our 1st post with cluster beans though it is a regular veggie at home. Will come up with more soon, for now Cabbage gorikai palya as it is called in Kannada is here:

Preparation time: 35-40 mins

Serves: 2


Cabbage 1/4th kilo
Cluster beans (goruchikkudukaya/Gorikai) 10-12
Split green gram (pesarapappu/moongdal) 1 cup
Green chillies 2
Curry leaves 4-5
Refined cooking oil 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds 2tsp
Pinch of asafoetida
Salt to taste
Fresh and grated coconut to garnish


Wash and soak the split green gram for around 30 mins.

Finely chop the cabbage. Finely chop the cluster beans, removing the fibers all along.

In a pan/kadai (bandli/mukudu), heat oil. Add cumin seeds and green chillies. As they pop, add curry leaves and a pinch of asafoetida.

Add the chopped cabbage, cluster beans and sauté for a couple of minutes. Drain off water from the soaked green gram and add the green gram. Cook for a couple of mins.

Add water enough to immerse all the ingredients. Cover and cook on medium heat for around 10 mins or until the cabbage, cluster beans and green gram feel cooked and the water has evaporated. (Add water if required and cook until all the veggies turn soft and cooked).

Add salt to taste and mix well. Garnish with fresh and grated coconut before serving.

Cabbage goruchikudu kura or cabbage cluster beans curry is a dry rice and Indian bread supplement. A healthy inclusion into regular day-to-day menus.
