A small amount went into a salad and the rest was made into a thoran.
This is what I did.
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed well
2 cups frozen edamame
1 small onion, finely chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped
To grind together:
3 Tbsp grated coconut
½ - ¾ tsp cumin seeds
3-4 red chillies
1 Tbsp coconut oil
½ tsp mustard seeds
½ tsp urad dal
A pinch of asafoetida
4-5 curry leaves
1-2 red chillies
In a pan, heat the oil & add the ingredients for the seasoning.
Add the garlic and onions. Sauté.
Add the frozen edamame and cover and cook till tender, 2-3 minutes. Toss in the black beans. Cook for a minute or so.
Add the ground coconut mixture. Mix well and cook for 3 minutes or so.
Serve hot with rice and sambar.
