Avarakkai Soya bean koottu/Flat beans Gravy with Soya bean

I love Flat beans/Avarakkai very much, I buy lots of them in its season and cook curry & gravy often.
One of the recipe with flat beans that I do is arachuvecha koottu /gravy with any chickpeas. This time I tried the gravy with soya bean. It has all the flavors of coconut, coriander, peanut in the Flat bean and Soya bean & it makes yummy combo with rice and papad.
Cut Flat beans - 2 cups
Soya bean - 1/2 cup(soaked overnight)
Moong Dal - 2 tsp
Salt to taste

For Tadka:
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds  -1 tsp
Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
Chana dal - 1/2 tsp
Hing - a pinch
Curry leaves - 5 -6

For grinding:
Red chilli - 1 (you can add more if you want it spicier)
Coriander seeds - 2 tsp
Chana Dal - 1 tsp
Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Peanuts - 1 tsp
Urad Dal - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Coconut - 1/4 cup

Pressure cook Flat beans, Soya beans and Moong dal together.

Fry and grind the ingredients given under 'For grinding'.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. Once it splutters, add all the other ingredients under 'For Tadka'.
Now add the cooked beans and ground mixture into it.
