Ingredients for chikkudukaya kura instant pot

Chikkudukaya: Chikkudukaya or broad beans are good source of b vitamin and folate. This popular Andhra dish is vegan and gluten-free.

Tomato: Tomato adds a nice tangy flavor to the dish and helps in binding spices together.

Potato: Tender, nutritious, and delicious textural element to this meatless dish. I prefer Yukon gold potatoes while cooking in an instant pot, as they hold the best shape. Red potatoes and russet potatoes also go well with this dish.

Sesame powder: Toasted sesame powder is optional, but no Andhra dish is complete without adding this powder for extra flavor and aroma. Sesame is a great source of magnesium and calcium.

Bend and tear the edges of the broad bean and peel the fiber string length-wise, as shown in the picture. 

Meal prep is the best way to cook this dish on week days. Find some time on week end or previous night while watching tv for cleaning the beans.
