Kobi-Tuver Seeng Shaaq

Let me introduce you to a gujju favourite bean. Lila Tuver Seeng.

This is generally available in the winters. At Bangalore I found it at the central jail road vegetable market [Electronic city]. I also hear that it is available at Jayanagar too.

It is used for all sorts of sides, farsaans and the like.

I made a simple curry with cabbage and added these beauties to it.

You shall need: [Feeds 4]

400 gms… Cabbage [Finely sliced]

1/2 cup… Tuvel Seeng [Boiled and par cooked]

1…green chilly [Finely chopped]


1/2 tbsp… Sambhaar masala [You may skip it if you dont have]– Please note that this is not “Sambhar” masala, this is a gujarati achaar masala, ready to use]

Red chilly powder to taste

1/2 tsp… Turmeric powder

1/2 tsp… Jeera

1/2 tsp.. rai

1/2 tsp… Dhana-jeeru powder

A pinch of asafoteda/heeng

2 tbsp… Oil

1/2 cup… water


  • In a wok, heat the oil.
  • Add jeera, rai and heeng.
  • Now add the sambhaar masala, salt, turmeric, dhana jeeru and cook briefly.
  • Add water and let the masalas simmer.
  • Now add the tuver seeng and cabbage.
  • Reduce the heat to medium flame.
  • Place a lid on the wok and cook until done. Stir occasionally.
  • Serve with Bhakri
