Avaraikkai-Thuvatal 1

#AvaraikkaiThuvatal 1 #BroadbeansStirFry : There are many different varieties of broad beans available in the market. This vegetable has a distinct sweet taste and suitable for preparing tasty sambar, koottu and thuvatal [ poriyal ].
I have already posted a recipe to make Avaraikkai Thuvatal in which the vegetable has been cooked in pressure cooker. The taste of the dish is slightly bland and sweet in taste. Some may not like that blandness and so here comes a recipe to make a spicier avaraikkai thuvatal.
