Sollile Avro Magge Ghalnu Ambat

             Sollile Avro Magge Ghalnu Ambat (peeled field beans & cucumber curry Avro (ovro /field beans) is a kind of pulse which is used by GSB s for making variety of curries and side dishes. Here I am posting a curry which could be served as a tasty main course curry with rice . Here this special ambat is prepared after peeling each avro which in turn make it so tasty just like cashew nuts . Agreed… its a bit laborious process to peel each avros ,but still the worth the effort.                         

Ingredients :-

  1. Avro   – 2 cups soaked overnight
  2. Yellow cucumber (magge)  – 1/2 cup( cut in small squares).
  3. Onion – 1 medium sized
  4. Coconut grated  – 1 n half cups
  5. Red chillies roasted in little oil – 10 to 12
  6. Tamarind   – a small piece
  7. Salt to taste 
  8. Shallots  – 4 to 5
  9. Oil for seasoning


Peel each soaked avros and remove the peels like we remove the skin of peanuts.    

  • Cook them till soft along with the cucumber and the chopped onion .
  • Grind coconut along with roasted red chillies and tamarind to a smooth paste adding required water.
  • Add this paste to the cooked avro veg mix and let it boil.
  • The consistency should be neither too thick and nor too thin.
  • Turn off when the curry boils.
  • Now prepare the shallots seasoning. Heat some 1 tbsp oil in a small pan and add finely chopped shallots to it..Fry till its turn golden brown.Pour the seasoning over the ambat.
  • your Ambat is ready!..


  • Cooking the peeled avros is bit tricky process. You can adapt either pressure cooker method or cook them in normal method in any vessel.
  • But there is a chance of them to become mushy while cooking in pressure cooker which is not advisable as you will not able to enjoy the taste of the avros..
  • But at the same time cooking in open vessel does take a  bit more time !
  • So adapt any of the method and be careful not to make them mushy.
