Gawar Bhoplya chi Bhaji
Groans and protests herald Gawar chi bhaji in my place.
Is there something else? Mamma how come we have the same vegetable every other day?
Same reaction in your place? I don’t know why actually it’s one of the healthiest bean.
The Gawaar/gavar/chavlikai/chitkimitki/Guar/cluster beans the botanical name of which is Cyamopsis tetragonoloba, is an annual legume and the source of guar gum.
In the wild Gawaar/cluster beans have never been found. For centuries the plant was domesticated and cultivated in India and Pakistan.
To make vegetable use younger, fresh chitkimitki/Guar/cluster beans They are narrow and long with tiny pods.
The seeds from the mature pods are dried and powdered to make gaur gum.Gaur gum is a star in industrial food preparations like ice creams etc. It is utilised as a thickening agent.
How to buy?
To make vegetable go buy tender cluster beans tender beans. The beans should not have any dark spots or even stains.
To make the vegetable string the beans.
In Maharashtrian homes, Gawari Bhopla chi Bhaji is a simple vegetable made regularly. My belief stems from the fact that I have eaten this Gawari Bhopla chi Bhaji after marriage.
I had some of the beans in the fridge and have used just 2 cups of the stringed and chopped beans.
