Thingalavre Upkari (white beans stir fry)

This is a protein rich and healthy breakfast.    I was in great confusion as to what should be prepared for breakfast, suddenly I remembered about this healthy “thingalavre upkari and povva chutney which my Grand mother used to prepare.
White beans                               --   1 cup
Red chilly                                    --    5 to 6   
Hing powder                              --    ½ tsp
Mustard seeds                           --  1 tsp
Curry leaves                               --   few
Oil                                                --   2 tsp
Grated coconut                         --   2 to 3 tbsp
Salt to taste
·       Soak white beans for 5 to 6  hours or overnight. 
·       Pressure cook with 3 cups of water  for 3 to 4 whistles.
·       Strain the water and keep aside.
·       Heat oil in kadai, add mustard seeds, hing powder, curry leaves and broken red chillies and fry for a while.
·       Then add cooked beans, salt add little cooked  water mix well let it boil for 5 to 10 minutes then add grated coconut mix well and cook for 5 minutes.
