Still figuring out what is the exact English name for this beans ... Anybody?
To my best search, I could relate or call it as Hyacinth bean seeds.

I was excited to see this in frozen section, its been years since I had them. It can be a tasty snack or a side dish too.

Preparation:
Add 1 tsp of olive oil and add Cumin seeds(1tsp),mustard seeds(1tsp), urad dal(1tsp), curry leaves, red chilly powder(1/2tsp), water(1tbsp).
Mix the Frozen beans in to it and saute them for few mins, add salt. Its Done!
Enjoy as a side dish or just as a snack.


Aahhh! the below pic is the traditional south Indian Coffee cup and saucer, not to mention its my New Love in Kitchen. It exactly holds only five sips of coffee, deliberately brought the cute and tiniest one, so I can enjoy my coffee/tea more than twice a day. This is my best buy of this year. what have you got recently?
