Tuvar Sabzi / Winter Special
Written by Jayashree
Published on January 11, 2020

Tuvar Lilva is a winter vegetable, it is abundantly available. It makes a good accompaniment with chapati or jowar roti. Kachoris are often made and they taste good. It is often used in sambar along with other vegetables. 

Tuvar  is mainly cultivated as a legume and is the primary food for the majority of the Indian population. Dal makes a good accompaniment with rice and chapati.

Today, I have a stir fry and it can be made in 15 minutes if  peeled and kept ready.  What do you make with it? I had shared another variety earlier. 

Tuvar is known as green pigeon pea and commonly called as Togare kalu in Karnataka and in Kerala as Tomara Payaru. In Europe, it is known as Congo Pea.

Do you know the best way to store green pea and tuvar? Pour them in a zip lock bag, lock and deep freeze it. It stays good for atleast one month. If you keep it longer, the taste may not be all that good.

To store green pea for a longer time, it is blanched, dried and then put in deep freezer. 

Here is another recipe using Tuvar, ideal with chapati. 

And here is the recipe of Tuvar Sabzi that I am sharing 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup tuvar lilva
  • 2 onion
  • 2 tomato
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/2 bunch coriander
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 6 green chilly
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 6 cashew
  • salt

Method:

  • Grind coriander, green chilly, ginger and garlic to a paste.
  • Cook tuvar lilva in pressure cooker with a little water.
  • Take oil in a pan, add onion and saute it.
  • Once it is light pink in colour, cashew pieces to it.
  • Then, add tomato and let cook for sometime.
  • Put turmeric powder to it.
  • Put the paste and the required salt.
  • Now, put the boiled peas to it and let cook for sometime.
  • Tuvar lilva stir fry is ready to serve.

    Such a different way to prepare fresh Tuvar. I usually make a dryish version with brinjals or muthia. Your preparation with gravy looks delicious.

    I do make tuven nu saak, but never tried with onion. This version sounds delicious and with a gravy too, must try one day. Perfect with roti or paratha.
