Cook's Hideout: Kobbari Senagapappu Kura with Beans (Coconut Curry with Split Pea & Green Beans)

Kobbari Senagapappu Kura with Beans (Coconut Curry with Split Pea & Green Beans)

Bonus Dish for Week 2:
Theme: A-Z Dishes from Andhra Pradesh
Dish: K for Kobbari Kura
This was the dish that I made for K, but as it turns out I had to make Lauju (coconut burfi) for letter L and since I didn't want two dishes back to back with the same ingredient K had to be changed to Kakarakaya Podi kura. So this simple, quick and easy curry recipe is my bonus recipe for this week. 
Kobbari Senagapappu Kura with Beans (Coconut Curry with Split Pea & Green Beans)
Any vegetable can be used to make this dish; carrot, cluster beans, cabbage etc being the best suited. There are no masalas and the flavor of the ingredients is what you taste. One of my favorite ways to cook veggies, no fuss recipe.

  2. Except for minor variations (coconut and chillies are ground together, but if I am really lazy, I just add it just like that), its almost like our thoran. I guess the basic funda for South Indian food is the same - except for a few changes here and there!
