From the Kitchens of Mana: Gwar Phali ki Subzi

A culture’s cuisine is heavily dependent on its natural surroundings. In the arid desert state of Rajasthan, most vegetables are hard to come by. However beans are readily available. Gawar phali is a Rajasthani variety of the green bean which is an important staple in the diet of the local people. A quick and simple dish, it’s delicious as well as nutritious!
