Green beans dried Maldives fish sambal – Beans Masi poriyal – Green beans masi stir fry

Eid Mubarak to all. Hope your eid went well. Here we are having four days of complete lockdown which started yesterday. So we have no chance of going out, just staying at home and spending time with family.

I made this recipe some days back. But couldn’t get time to post it. I usually cook this regularly to have along with Rice and dal, Sambar or Rasam. Here I have posted the recipe using green beans we can also do the same with broad beans. When we feel like having non veg and if there is no non veg at home I make this. I always have this Masi powder stored in an air tight bottle kept in the refrigerator. My mom used to make Masi powder at home and send me.
