Fava Beans Rice

Oh yes! You can quickly make some lip smacking rice with these Fava Beans in it.

Fava Beans are also called Broad Beans. Avarakai in Tamil.

It is high in Protein & Fiber but low on Fats so it surely should be tried.

So let's get to cooking.

Get ready with:
  • Cooked Rice - 1 Bowl
  • Broad Beans - 12
  • Spring Onions - 2
  • Salt - As per taste
  • Oil - 2 teaspoons

Put it together:
  1. Trim the beans & chop each in 2 or 3 parts. You may chop them according to your wish however I like them bigger as they look delectable to me.
  2. Now heat a deep pot with water in it. When the water boils throw in the beans & let them get cooked. Remove from heat & strain when done.
  3. Ready a wok on high flame with 2 teaspoons of edible oil in it & add the fava beans & spring onions together. Saute for a minute.
  4. Now add the cooked rice & salt to this & mix in well.
  5. Your rice is ready to be served with some hot manchurian!

  • You may use normal onions if spring onions arent available although you will miss the greens & the lovely fresh taste
  • Serve them with any hot & spicy curry
