How to make Kasara Kaya Vepudu

  • The vegetable looks as shown in the picture. You need to remove the tips. They actually come off if you break them. Since these are small in size, its takes a while to clean all of them.
  • Once the stocks are removed, clean in running water and chop the onions.
  • Heat a nonstick pan. Add cooking oil, then temper with cumin seeds, mustard and urad dal. Then, sauté onions till its pink. To this, add the washed kasara kaya.
  • Add salt and turmeric powder. Simmer for 10 mins. Cover it and check after 10 mins. Stir and add red chilli powder. Mix well. and let it get cooked for another 10 mins. You know it's cooked by seeing the green colour turning brown or black.
  • Once it's cooked, garnish it with a powder made with coconut and garlic. You can even add the fried gram powder. We don't add coriander powder. This goes well with dal and rice.
