Firstly, take 2.5 cups of water in a skillet, add raw gavar/cluster beans in it & boil it for 8 to 10 minutes. By doing this, gavar/cluster beans will be almost cooked & it will make our recipe quicker. Once boiled, remove from the gas, drain out all the water & keep gavar/cluster beans aside. Then on a medium flame, add oil in the skillet. Once hot, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds & let them splutture. Add garlic cloves & stir for a minute. Add onion & let it become tender. Then add turmeric powder, red chilli powder & stir for few seconds. Then add tamrind paste & jaggery/sugar. (This step is completely optional. But adding tamrind paste & jaggery/sugar gives a little sweet & sour taste to the vegetable). Then add the boiled gavar/cluster beans to it & let it cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Once done, add roasted peanut powder, salt to taste & stir everthing very well. Cook for 2 minutes & our gavar/cluster beans vegetable is ready! Serve it with roti/chapati. This recipe is also a great Lunch box idea on a busy day. Few people like to add Potato in it. So add 1 boiled & diced potato just after adding boiled gavar/cluster beans. Rest all procedure is the same!
