Foogath is a Goan way of cooking vegetables, with coconut and curry leaves. Perhaps due to the Konkani influence, foogath is very similar to the vegetable curries of everyday south Indian cooking. The roasted urad dal and asafoetida give the French Beans Foogath an aromatic appeal even without using onions, garlic, etc., while the soaked chana dal adds to the volume and balances the texture well. A Jain-friendly method of preparation, foogath can also be made with other veggies like cabbage or cluster beans.
