In our place we used to say achinga payar (long beans) as pacha payar ..In some other places green gram is called as pacha payar ..So here i am telling about long beans ..I love long beans ..When i go home amma used to make payar mezhukku for me ..Here in dubai we very rarely see good kind of long beans ..That too the tender beans..I always  take out of the seeds and used to make mezhukku using that …This time also i was able to have that dish  ..Its very simple and  tasty …So here comes the recipe….



Long beans -1/2 kg(take out the seeds)

Crushed  red chilly-2tsp or according to ur taste

Cheriya ulli(shallots)-15
