Guwar Phali

 1 Pound Guwar (a flat bean approximately 4-15” long)
 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
 1 medium-sized onion, chopped
 1 Tablespoon cumin
 1 Teaspoon tumeric
 1 Teaspoon chili powder
 1 Tablespoon Katchri*
 ½ Cup non-dairy plan unsweetened yogurt

*Katchri Power is a sour-tasting spice made from a small brownish-yellow melon

  indigenous to Rajasthan

1

Wash Guwar, trim off both ends, and pat dry.

2

Heat coconut oil in cast iron fry pan using medium heat.

3

Add onion and cook until tender and caramelized. Do not short-circuit this step. You want to slowly cook and caramelize the onions as this is a large part of the flavor development.

4

Add the cumin, turmeric, chili powder, and Katchri. Cook until fragrant, and the oil has the appearance of ‘splitting’.

5

Add the yogurt, and cook until the sauce tightens.

6

Add the guwar, cover the pan with a lid, and cook until the guwar is tender but still has a ‘bite’.
