Avarakkai verkadalai poriyal, Broad beans peanuts masala
Avarakkai verkadalai poriyal, broad beans peanuts masala. A stir fry made with broad beans, peanuts and simple seasonings.
Avarakkai is very good for health. I like avarakkai so much and even Gj likes it. By the way, when we lived in Delaware, we would not get avarakkai often. Even if avarakkai is sold, unfortunately they would not be fresh ones. So, I used to cook avarakkai just once in a month. Only after moving to california, I have started cooking broad beans twice a week. Yeah!
Broad beans/avaraikkai is an excellent source of protein and fiber. Not to mention, it is very good for heart, diabetes and weight loss.
I like adding peanuts to my poriyal often. This poriyal has a masala flavor in it. While eating, when you bite the peanut in the poriyal, it would be crunchy. It goes well with rice, rasam, sambar and kootu. If you do not like peanuts, skip it.
