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. I purposely prepare a little extra & use the left over sabji to make a grilled sandwich. Yumm!! Do check my entire Potato Recipes collection HERE. 

Now to the recipe…

Potato Broad Beans Fry My Magic Pan


  1. I have not used any water to cook the veggies, just covered & cooked in low flame. This way it will remain crunchy.
  2. U can add a pinch of garam masala for an extra flavour.
  3. If u prefer the sabji to be tangy add 1/4 tsp of amchur powder.
  4. U can substitute fried gram powder with besan, but personally I feel it tastes better with fried gram powder. Its healthy too.
