The dish is native to Karnataka. Typically, Hyacinth Beans (Avrekai) is used which is grown regionally & seasonally. The beans have a mild pungent taste which imparts a complex umami flavor to this chicken curry. Kabuli Chana can replace Avrekai where it is not available. I Have used Kabuli Chana here. The curry is spicy with brilliant flavors of dry spices & subtle sweetness of fresh coconut.
