As a kid, beans were always a meh vegetable for me. Okay to be more accurate, that was the case for most vegetables in my life. Which sane kid loved vegetables anyway, eh?
But leaving home and living away from ammi’s kitchen made me crave all the food that I never appreciated as a kid – beans included! It also helped that my better half is a big fan of beans (apart from beets) and it is also a snap to make. This recipe is inspired by my lovely mother in law who made this for us when she visited us last and it has stuck with me since. I love my beans to be green, lightly flavored and still slightly crunchy.
Here’s the recipe for this quick and easy dish which pairs with almost any Lankan rice and curry meal.
