Mutton With Snow Peas Korma:
Indian Broad beans with Mutton - Korma recipe. Avaraikkai Mutton Kuruma. Snow peas with Meat. Chikudukai Mutton Curry. Bakla-Mutton Curry.
There is nothing much to say...I love Avaraikkai! In fact when I was a kid, we had 'Avarai kodi' in our garden. They flourish too quickly. Each vine gives out about 4 kilos of Broad beans every week(during season). So we used to share them with neighbours and friends. It became a custom to include them a lot in cooking. So each time Mommy pairs them with mutton or chicken preparations. I have to say...broad beans turns yummy when paired with just 100 grams of meat. Naima aunty, had actually taught this trick to my mother! I bet no one will waste vegetables when it is made so delectable...so dig in!
