Hi all! I am writing a mixed bean gravy soup recipe. I am writing this specially for my friend Claire who I hope will be happy to see this recipe. She liked this mix bean soup very much while she was here in Nepal.
I too like this one and prefer it with salad. This is quite easy to make and also looks great because the colorful mixed beans are really pleasing to the yes. I think it is good for health too.
Preparation time : 30 minute
(For 8 person)
- Mixed bean 500gm (scroll down for photo)
- Oil or butter 100ml
- Onion 300gm
- Tomato 500gm
- Fenugreek seed (methi) 1/2 tsp
- Cardamom 5-6 piece
- Cinnamon stick 2 stick
- Bay leaf 4 leaf
- Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
- Cumin powder (jeera dhulo) 1/2 tsp
- Red chilly powder 1/2 tsp
- Coriander powder 1 /2 tsp
- Ginger-garlic paste 2 tsp
- Coriander leaf for garnish
- Salt to taste
- Stock or water as required
We have to soak the mixed beans before we can actually start cooking. So, first be sure to wash and then soak the mixed beans overnight or at least 7-8 hours in cold water before beginning this dish.
I like to use generous amount of tomato and onion to make gravy. As you can see in the ingredient list also, I have put 300 gms of onion and half a kilo of tomato. Chop the onions and fine chop all the tomatoes.
Soaked mixed beans, chopped onion and tomatoes.
