ABOUT Avarakkai Kootu / Broad beans kootu RECIPE

In tamilnadu, if somebody says Avarakkai next person will say kootu. Avarakkai kootu is the best side dish for rice. Avarakkai kootu is very famous it is being served in Marriages. I have prepared the same method using chow chow, snake gourd, ridge gourd, drum sticks, carrot, etc but it tastes best with broad beans. Cook time is 1/2 hr as i dont pressure cook dal. I could actually find some difference in taste when i pressure cook and boiling dal. It tastes better when i boil dal with water.
