Sem Ki Phalli Ka Salan

Sem Ki Phalli Ka Salan (Indian broad bean curry) is an all time favourite curry in my family. With piping hot roti's this recipe is going to gratify your tastebuds. Sem Ki Phalli/Chikkudu Kaya/Indian Broad Beans are excellent source of folic acid and a good source of potassium and magnesium along with copper, phosphorus, zinc, iron, thiamine and riboflavin. Vegetable markets will be full with this beans in winter season. With gorgeous green color and distinctive flavour these beans always tops my food charts. Where the chill air passing my kitchen window tickles my cheeks the hot aroma of roti's and this curry procure me to stand in the kitchen. Here is a very simple version to make this flavorful curry.

Phalli


This curry is going to particpate in My Legume Love Affair-Seventh Helping hosted by Srivalli of Cooking 4 All Seasons. This event is stared by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook Susan.
