ACHINGA PAYAR THORAN / LONG BEANS STIR FRY







One of the widely used vegetable in Kerala is long beans. This vegetable can be grown very easily in our backyard and most of the home in Kerala have at least one corner ground set aside for this. In my home it is very rarely that we would buy this vegetable from the store and we always see this dish along with rice and the rest of the sides daily.
