broad beans recipe simple avarakkai poriyal(stir fry)
Stir fries are damn good healthy for the reason that it makes the Indian lunch portions more filling and satisfying .Broad beans stir fry/Avarakkai poriyal is one such simple and tasty stir fry(s) that can be done in a jiffy!but each home have their own method of making this avarakkai poriyal(stir fry).I love-making my paati(s) method she used to steam the broad beans before hand and add some sugar when steaming which enhances the taste of the vegetable and color too does not change (restored). Instead of onion for extra crunch she cooks toor dal and adds it to the beans. Toor dal should be three fourth cooked which is best for these type of stir fries.After switching off let it be in kadai for some time so that all the moisture is absorbed.
