Chikkudu kaya we make a few verities of curries and stir fries with this vegetable.  Usually we make this stir fry with plain rice and dal or sambar.   
Broad beans are rich sources of vitamin A and C it helps in bone development. It helps to maintain the blood presure, and helps to control the cholesterol levels and many more health benefits.

This is an interesting version. I make it without the garlic. Is Chikkudkaya same as Green beans?
