Potato Broad-Beans Fry

This Potato Broad-Beans fry is a simple stir fry. This is my favourite since childhood. We call this Aloo-Avarakkai. I dont know from where we derived this name, as Aloo is in hindi & Avarakkai is in tamil. Funny na?? But we call it that way 🙂 It goes well with rice (rasam, sambar, curd) & chapathi or even bread.
