Guar (cluster beans) or Gavar ki Sabji is a simple side dish which goes well with Rice or Roti. The addition of spices compliments the distinct, slightly bitter flavour of these legumes. Tomato adds a nice tang to the dish. Making it in the pressure cooker or pressure pan, reduces the cooking time. You can alternatively make it in a pan/wok.

Serve Gavar Ki Sabji along with Panchmel Dal, Boondi Raita and Phulkas for a weekday meal.
