Hyacinth Beans Stir fry

Hyacinth Beans or Indian Beans (Avarai / Avaraikkai) is one of the favorite vegetables among us. Even my toddler son likes this a lot. Of course, he needs curd rice along with this. After my delivery (and other surgeries), my doctor asked my mom to serve me rice with rasam and less hot Avaraikkai poriyal. That day I realized it how good is this beans to our body. I thought it must be easily digestible and does no harm to recently operated me. From then on, I always value this beans much more than earlier.


Indian / Hyacinth Beans 250g
Sambar Powder 1 tbsp leveled
Shredded coconut 1 tblsp

To temper:

Mustard seeds
