Pachai mochai fry recipe, Field beans fry

Pacha mochai/ Surti padi lilva/ Avarai payiru fry is one such quick and simple to make yummy poriyal/ fry that goes easily with any south Indian lunch menu. This mochai is easily available in market, which needs to be deshelled or sometimes is sold in plastic bags without shells for extra cost which means there is no hard work from our side which makes cooking easy and quick. Here for this recipe I used frozen ones as we don’t get fresh ones here in stores. These fresh mochai can be cooked in many varieties but this particular recipe is my favorite as it is quick to make and yummy as well. Just few simple everyday ingredients are only required for this fry preparation, do try it out at home. Here I pressure cooked the beans first then roasted, where little crunch will be missing , but you can cook in another way as well, by roasting the washed beans in oil along with all the dry powders and cover and cook by adding few drops of water every now and then. But this method is little too long as it needs constant check and is time consuming as well. Do try both the methods and let me know your feedback. So let’s get to the making!
