Achinga Payar Mezhukkupuratti / Long Beans Stir Fry

The other day when I was going through the site, I noticed something… it’s been sometime I’ve posted a Kerala recipe. So, I’m posting this very basic and pretty straight forward Kerala style stir fry recipe. Well, before going to the recipe, I’d like to share something else with you..

Recently I was asked to share some details about Kerala breakfast food and also my feelings of being a Malayali, for a UK based magazine called Good Things. I’ve posted the article sometime ago here, I’m not sure whether you saw it. Anyways, you can see the published version here.

So coming back to our recipe, this is one of the most common side dish for a Kerala style oonnu / lunch. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of this particular veggie. When anybody asks me whether I’ve a preferred veg choice for lunch side dish, my usual reply is anything is ok, except achinga. The thing is.. I tried eating it 2-3 times, but every time I had a pokey feeling inside my mouth, well that’s what happens if you under cook this veggie. Off late, I’ve discovered that my taste appreciation is changing and it’s becoming more accommodating too.

  • Hi Maria,

    Nice recipe :-) But I was looking at your pan all the time. Is it an iron pan? Like our irumbu cheenachatti back in Kerala.

    Luv,
    Lakshmi.
