Goruchikkudu Tomato Kura/ Cluster bean or Guvar tomato Curry

Goruchikkudu Tomato Kura

this is a quick dish if you have frozen Guvar at all times.

Ingredients and Proceed:

Frozen Guvar - 1 packet (350g)
Water - 2 rice cups
Turmeric -  1/4 tsp
Salt  - 1/2 tsp

Pressure these for 2 whistles on a gas cooking range or 1 whistle for electric burner, after switching off leave it on the same element.

Oil - 4 tbsp

Onion -1 large (chopped)
Green chillies - 4 slit
Curry leaves - 1-2 sprigs

Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tsp

Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Masala powder - 1 tsp (follow my kodi kura recipe except star anise)

Tomato - 3 large (chopped)

Salt to taste
Coriander leaves - handful


Heat oil in a medium flat deep nonstick pan, once hot on medium heat add chopped onions, slit green chillies, and curry leaves by tearing, mix well. and fry until light golden colour. by covering the dish.

Add gg paste mix once and add drained out cooked guvar to it stir well, and on top of it put turmeric, chilli powder, cover and cook for 5 mins.

Add masala powder and stir well for few secs.

Add tomato mix well and cover and cook for 5 -10 mins. until tomatoes are softened.

Add salt to taste (remember you already added salt earlier so go easy) and chopped coriander, cover and cook away for few mins. more.


no need to add water while doing curry.


If you have kids, you can add potato while pressure cooking the guvar. and while serving them drizzle ghee. yummo!

Serve with Rice or Roti and yoghurt on side.
