Achinga Mezhukkupuratti (long Beans Stir Fry)
Achinga mezhukkupuratti was a regular dish in my lunch box during my school days. The reason is that it is simple and needs less time to prepare. Achinga or long bean is a vegetable with low calorie, but it is a good source of thiamine, vitamin A, iron, phosphorous, potassium, vitamin C, etc. So adding this vegetable in your daily diet is a good option for making your body healthy. Whenever I prepare achinga mezhukupuratti, I always remember my childhood days, when I used to enter the kitchen to help my mother. She used to ask me to cut the long beans in small pieces, but as a child I always cut the beans in various sizes. When I grew up, achinga mezhukkupuratti was the first recipe that my mom taught me. Now when I prepare achinga mezhukkupuratti with my daughter, she always makes me remember my good old days with my mom in the kitchen, as she too cuts the achinga crazily as I did when I was a child.
