METHOD:

1.       Pressure cook the kulith with 4 cups of water for 4 – 5 whistles. These sprouts take a little longer to cook so give 2 - 3 whistles more than what you would regularly give while pressure cooking.


2.       Collect the juices / water in a separate bowl. The sprouts can be used to make usal.

3.       Add to the juices salt and bring it to a boil. If you do not like it spicy then add the green chillies now or use them in the tadka / tempering.

4.       Switch off the flame, allow it to stand for a few min.


5.       Separately heat oil, add the jeera and heeng.

6.       When it crackles add the garlic, kokum and allow the garlic to turn light brown.




7.       Pour this tadka over the horsebean flavoured water / juices.




8.       Pour into it the buttermilk and the coconut milk and again reheat till it is hot enough but does not boil.

9.       Serves well as a hot appetizing drink.
