Avarekalu Mixture

2 cups Flat Bean Seeds / Avarekalu
1/2 - 3/4 tsp Chilly powder
Pinch of Asafetida powder
Pinch of Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
Salt to taste
5-6 Curry leaves
1 tsp Cashew nut pieces
2 tsp Groundnut / Peanuts
7-8 small pieces of Dry Coconut / Kobbari

Separate the seeds from fresh flat beans.

Soak flat bean seeds in water for about 4-5 hrs. Press each soaked seed and remove the outer layer. Put them in a tissue paper to remove the water content.

Keep oil in a thick bottomed vessel and heat it. Put flat bean seeds in oil and fry them until they turn golden in color.

Take them from the oil and put them in a tissue paper to absorb the oil content.

Put curry leaves in a microwave for few seconds and mash it into small pieces.

Put mustard seeds, peanuts, cashew nut pieces, dry coconut pieces, 2-3 tsp oil in a pan and fry them in medium flame. Once they turn golden in color, add curry leaves, chilly powder, turmeric powder, asafetida powder and fry them for about 5-10 seconds.

Add fried flat bean seeds, salt and mix them well. Once they are cooled to room temperature, keep them in an airtight container. Serve along with coffee or tea.
