1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp coriander powder

. Take 2 Tbsp of oil in a pan, add mustard seeds followed by asafoetida and onions. Keep stirring until onions turn golden.
. Add turmeric powder, chili powder, cumin powder and coriander powder, one followed by the other. Keep stirring until the masala is cooked and oil starts oozing out of the masala.
. Add chopped beans (1 inch pieces) to the pan followed by salt. At this stage, add approximately 100 ml (2 cups) of water to the pan. Continue stirring.
. Next, you add grounded/pounded masala to the pan and a bit of jaggery in order to level off the spices and chilies. In case you want it spicier, then add 1 chili vertically slit in half.
. To this, you add crushed peanut powder which is a Maharashtrian specialty and your Gawaar ki Bhaaji is ready.
. Traditionally the gawaar ki bhaaji is eaten with Shehendaane ki chutney (groundnut chutney) and Bhaakhri or roti’s.
