Sim Sarshe Jhal or Hyacinth Beans in Mustard Gravy

In my childhood days I used to run away from vegetables and my mother used to tell me the nutrition values of vegetables. But never actually listened to her, except cauliflower and cabbage but not more than that. But slowly I started to have few of the vegetables. Apart from all the vegetable I never liked to have Sim or Hyacinth Beans, because I never found it tasty. But my mom used to cook it so nicely and I prefer to taste the gravy only.

Today I prepared some Sim Sarshe Jhal or Hyacinth Beans in Mustard Gravy. The recipe is very easy and perfect with steamed plain rice. Try it once I am sure your family gonna love this.

5.Pinch of Panch foron (mixture of kalonji, fenel seeds, jeera, methi, mustard seeds)
6.Half tea spoon turmeric powder.
7.Salt and sugar as per taste.
