Avarakai Poriyal / Broad bean curry recipe

Avarakai poriyal is a simple and easy to make recipe that tastes great especially with south indian meal with sambar,rasam and appalam.Apart from the taste,this healthy vegetable is rich in dietary fiber,protein and other nutrients and can be easily grown in home garden.
Avarakais can also be prepared as kootu with coconut and pulses that pairs well with north indian meal with chapathis or rotis .I have already shared an avarakai recipe with mochai.One of my friend makes sambar with avarakai,shallots,tomatoes and mint leaves,its such a flavourful sambar and i love to have it with poori.Today I have shared an easy avarakai poriyal recipe that even bachelors can make with very few ingredients but tastes great.
