Soppavare name itself is very much nostalgic. We had a widespread vine in our front yard and we used to relish a whole lot of Mangalorean traditional recipes in our childhood days.
Winged bean is a nutritionally very rich, tropical vine, which needs warm weather, but in the winter season. Almost all parts of the plant are edible, and vine produces unique shaped bean with four-winged edges.
It is rich in vitamins, minerals and many nutrients. When it is cooked, bean has nutty flavour and is consumed in many forms from salad to stir fries or in a form of curry.
My family relishes on this simple stir-fried salad with this simple seasoning.
Winged beans – 10 -15
Olive oil – 2 tsp
Garlic salt – 1 tsp
Chilli flakes – ½ – 1 tsp
- Wash and slice the beans.
- Heat one non-stick tawa add olive oil, add chopped beans, garlic salt and red chilli flakes.
- Stir fry for a while and serve as it is or with curd rice or as you wish.
