Borboti Bhaji (Snake Beans Stir Fry)


‘Borboti’ or snake beans one of such vegetable that I do not like t cook or eat. But both my parents love it. So when I cook I try to cook it different way every time. This snake beans stir fry goes very well with roti or paratha. Even you can serve this as sides with steamed rice and ‘dal’. Adding sesame seeds gives very nice nutty and crunchy flavor as well as texture to the dish. It tastes best if cooked and served fresh and hot!
