Chikkudukaya is a kind of beans mostly found in Indian stores. They are of different types, some with seeds inside some without. Some are light green in color some dark and some purple too. It tastes great if you cook with onions, tomatoes and some spices as a gravy curry or just stir fry with some chopped onions and spices. Today I have made this simple and delicious stir fry to go with rice or roti. This recipe goes to the 2nd day of week 4, Blogging Marathon 74 under the theme " Quick and Delicious Stir- Fries".
