Recipe Name: Beans Rice (dalimbi / birde bhaat)  
Category: Indian Regional Sub Category: Marathi


Prep Time Cook Time Serves
120 mins 35 mins 8



Basmati Rice   1½ cup
Field beans (dalimbi/kadwe val/surti val)   1/2 cup
Maharashtrian black masala   2 tsp
Shredded dry coconut   1 tbsp
Cumin seeds   2 tsp
Green chilies   4 nos
Curry leaves   6-7 nos
Jaggery or sugar   1 tsp
Salt to taste  
Fresh grated coconut   100 g
coriander leaves/cilantro   2 tsp
Oil   1 tbsp


  • Wash and soak the beans overnight in plenty of water. Next morning, drain all the water and rinse beans until the water runs clear. Tie the beans in a muslin cloth or place them in a strainer. Keep them in a warm place for 24 hours or till they sprout.
  • Now soak the sprouted beans in lukewarm water for an hour so that their skins can come out easily. The best method to remove their skins is to press each between thumb and index finger and pull the skin off.
  • Once they are peeled, wash and keep them aside.
  • Wash and drain the rice. Set aside for 1/2 an hour. Meanwhile bring 3 cups of water to a boil.
  • In a skillet, toast dry coconut and cumin seeds lightly and grind them into a fine powder. Chop chilies and coriander leaves.
  • Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan. Add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add asafoetida, turmeric powder, curry leaves and chilies.
  • Add beans and fry them for 2-3 minutes. Add rice and again fry for sometime. Then add boiling water to it.
  • When the water is half soaked in the rice, add black masala, ground powder, salt, jaggery. Stir it gently taking care not to break the rice grains or the beans. Lastly add ghee and mix.
  • Garnish with fresh coconut and coriander leaves.

Tips: You can add chopped onions and/or crushed garlic along with the beans.
