Long Beans Stir Fry

A quick stir fry and a great side dish for rice or roti…

It’s hard to find long beans in regular grocery stores, you can find them in either Indian stores which has vegetables or at some Asian markets. I get hold of long beans very rarely and I usually make this stir fry. This makes a great dish for rice or roti. If you don’t have long beans, you could even try this with other vegetables like beans, cauliflower , ivy gourd etc.
