How to make Big Beans Potato Curry Recipe


Usually MA is less or not interested in shopping. Being a busy day and after compelling a lot, once he went for grocery shopping. And, so he happened to buy this beans. These beans are much bigger than the normal beans. And, so I was little skeptical about its size after soaking.. haha..!!

Anyway, I cooked . Not so much to my surprise, it doubled in size, unlike other beans. Yeah!! only doubled. I estimated that it might grow like Alladin's genie.. Just kidding.




So, this big bean, like any other beans comes from a family of Legumes. And is an important source of protein. I tried making it like rajma with some cubes of potatoes. And, it was a hit combo with jeera rice.
