Aloo-Borboti Torkari (Yard Long Bean Thoran)

                                                                                
Today I would like to present a simple yet tasty stir fry which is ideal for serving during the summer time. The regular intake of green vegetables can never be over emphasized and therefore having it during meals would not only be good for our health but also preparing by using this method will make it tastier.
                                                                         
Serves: 2, Preparation time: 15 minutes


Ingredients:
200 gms Borboti (Indian Yard long Bean)
1 Potato
1 tsp Cumin seeds
2 Green chillies
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Red chilly powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
A pinch of Asafetida
1/2 tsp Sugar
1 Whole red chilly
Salt to taste
1 tbsp Mustard oil
1/4 water to sprinkle


Method:
After washing borboti, snap the ends and chop them into 1"inch long length. And chop potato like french fry style. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Fry for few seconds or till the seeds starts spluttering. Add chilly, asafetida, potatoes and fry on medium flame for 2-3 minutes. Now add turmeric powder, red chilly powder, borboti (Yard long beans), sugar and salt. Stir fry and sprinkle little water in it, cover and cook till the beans become soft and tender. Serve this borboti stir fry with Dal -Bhaat or Chapati.

  28. Your post on barbatti makes me nostalgic with memories from childhood when our dad would ask mom to boil these in salted water .Yes-that was one fun way we as kids enjoyed barbatti's,I guess as kids our palettes enjoy anything that is cooked without any miscreants...lol I have not had this veggie in a long time because of the unavailability here :( I love this version though:) BTw thanks for your well wishes for me while I was holidaying in India.
