Cauliflower and Beans kura


Inspired by Mahanandi's Gasagasalu ~ Bendakaaya/Okra ~ Poppy Seed Curry, I tried poppy seed red chilly powder on beans stir fry just as Indira did on okra and we liked it. So,I decided to give it a try on another kura today and the result is very good. We liked this too. Thanks Indira for another good recipe. Poppy seeds were almost never used in my mother's kitchen. Even in my kitchen,there were times when the poppy seed jar was lying unused till days and weeks and finally ending up in trash. So,I stopped buying . Again,I bought poppy seeds recently thinking to use in some korma recipes. Thank you Indira,my poppy seeds have to never end up in trash again.

To make cauliflower~beans kura, I used
1 cup washed and cleaned cauliflower florets.
1 /2 cup finely chopped beans
1/2 of a medium tomato finely chopped
salt as needed
poppy seed+ red chillies powder( As per Indira's recipe -> Dry roast 3 tablespoons poppyseeds in a skillet along with 3 dried red chillies and pound into a fine powder)

Method:
Add and toast popu in a skillet. Add veggies and salt as required. Cover and cook till tender. Sprinkle water if necesarry in between. Add poppyseed powder,stir and let cook for 2 minutes.Serve hot with rice
