1 pack cut frozen beans ( I use the french style cut beans)
3 green chillies
1 cup besan (chickpea flour)
1 spoon red chilli powder
salt to taste
Method 1 :
Mix besan, redchilli powder, hing and salt. Add water and make it like dosa/pancake batter.
Heat a pan and make thick pancakes with this batter.
Let it cool.
In the meanwhile, steam the frozen beans in microwave for 6 minutes.
Heat little oil, add mustard seeds and when it pops add urad daal, hing and green chillies and saute till urad daal is golden brown.
Add the steamed beans, salt and cook till it is almost done.
Now, cut the pancakes into pieces and dry grind to coarse powder. Add this powder to the beans and cook for some more time. It tastes really good.
Method 2 :
Cook beans as mentioned in method 1. Instead of making pancakes out of the besan, just mix the besan, redchilli powder, salt and hing. Do not add water.
Once the beans is cooked, add this powder to the beans and cover the pan and cook for some time. Stir it and cover it again. Repeat till it is done.
This recipe uses 1 cup of chickpea flour and that has 21 g of protein. Now, that's an excellent source of protein isn't it? I am going to send this to "Eat Healthy - Protein Rich CONTEST" hosted by http://letusallcook.blogspot.com/
