Vaalichi Bhaji


  • Use a microwave safe glass bowl for this recipe as we will use oil. I made this sabji on 100% power. (default mode in my LG microwave)
  • Chop the vaal and onions. Slit the chillies.
  • Dry the bowl ( heat in microwave for 1-2 mins on high) and add the oil in it. Heat at 100% power for 1-2 mins. Now add the mustard and hing. Cover half with a lid, heat for 3 mins or till the mustard splutters.
  • Now add the onions and microwave for 2 mins. Stir in between.
  • Now add the green chillies, vaal and salt to taste. Add around 3/4-1 cup water, stir well and microwave for 5 mins.
  • Stir once or twice in-between.
  • Mix the grated coconut, cover and cook for another 5 mins. Add more water and cook if required as the beans may require more cooking.
  • Serve as a side dish with rice-dal or with chapati/roti/bread.
