Goru Chikkudukaya Kura


This particular vegetable comes under the category of really easy to make! 🙂

1/4 kg goru chikkudukaya (Cluster beans)
1/2 fresh coconut, desiccated
1 tsp salt
a pinch of turmeric
1/2 tsp chilli powder

1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1tsp urad dal
1 red chilli


  • Scrape the goru chikkudukaya and break them into pieces, while removing as much of the ‘strings’ on the side as possible.
  • In a wok, heat the beans, water to submerge the goru chikkudukayas pieces, salt and turmeric. You may also cook this in a pressure cooker.
  • Place a lid on the wok, and cook till all water dries up.
  • Gently check if the goru chikkudukaya pieces are done.
  • Once all water has dried up, add chilli powder and cook on open flame for 5 minutes.
  • Take off the gas, and prepare tadka.
  • Once the tadka starts popping, add to the vegetable, and put the vegetable back to cook for a couple of minutes. This will help the vegetable to absorb the minimal oil from the tadka.
  • Add the desiccated coconut and cook for 5 minutes or till the coconut dries and coats the goru chikkudukaya pieces.

Serve hot with rice or chapati.
