Gawar ki Sabzi Gosht with step by step photos and video instructions is nothing but the cluster beans dish made in mutton masala. Simple, easy and tasty like the Palak Gosht. If you are fond of the Cluster Beans, you will surely love this Hyderabadi delicacy.
What is gawar or cluster beans?
“The Guar or cluster bean, with the botanical name Cyamopsis tetragonoloba, is an annual legume and the source of guar gum. It is also known as Gavar, Guwar or Guvar bean.” This is according to our own Wikipedia.
How to choose guar phali?
Choose the phali that is young, fresh and green. The mature ones become woody and fibrous and they aren’t so pleasant to taste.
How to cut the cluster beans?
The process of cutting the beans is quiet lengthy. You will have to remove the top and bottom and then string them on both the sides. But you can just omit it if you are not so particular about how it is made and simply remove the heads of the beans and chop it off.
How to make the Hyderabadi Gawar Ki Phali and with what ingredients?
Most of the veggies cooked with mutton are made in the same way in my kitchen with very minute difference depending upon how the particular veggie needs to be cooked. These are the recipes that you wouldn’t find in any restaurants generally. These recipes are passed down from generations and each family would have it’s own unique way of making the Hyderabadi Gawar ki Sabzi Gosht.
First, you will start with frying the onion in oil. Then once the onion is translucent, you will add the ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw smell vanishes. Then add the mutton pieces, red chili powder, turmeric powder, salt, and coriander powder. The mutton is fried till the water dries up and it turns brown in color. Next, tomato and sufficient water are added to cook the mutton. Finally, the cluster beans are added to the mutton masala and cooked till done.
