Chicken mince cooked with cluster beans (Gawar) and potatoes

Chicken mince cooked with cluster beans and potatoes

This is a very simple dish with few ingredients and yet the taste is simply fantastic. This dish has a slight bitterish aftertaste due to the cluster beans but this is exactly what makes this dish so interesting. The peppery chicken mince marries beautifully with the cluster beans

Chicken mince – 250 grams
Cluster beans – 400 grams
Potato – one very large diced yum nail size
Onion – one large cut very fine
Tomato – one large cut very fine
Green chillies – two to three
Curry leaves – one sprig
Ginger and garlic paste – one teaspoon
Cumin powder – one large teaspoon
Turmeric powder – 1/2 teaspoon
Pepper powder – coarsely ground and fresh, two teaspoons

In a pot heat some oil and add the green chillies and curry leaves. Add the onions and let it fry till they are translucent. Now add the tomatoes and cook for a minute or so. At this stage add the ginger and garlic paste along with the turmeric, cumin and pepper powder. Stir this in and add the chicken mince with the potatoes. Add half a cup of water and cook this for five minutes on a medium heat.

Now add on the cluster beans which have been finely cut and mix well. This needs to cook for three minutes only. Remember the cluster beans are cut fine so they will cook quickly. You don’t want the vegetables to go limp and you need to retain the bright green colour. Turn off the heat and cover and allow the vegetables to cook in the heat of the dish. When serving add lime.
