STIR FRY OF BEANS AND POTATO ( Aloo Beans Bhaja)

India, where you get lots of variety of food and each of dish has its own importance but if you see very closely all these dish has somewhere or other little similarities also e.g., south's more Kuzhambu and west's Khadi, the chutneys of andhra is known as pachadi in Tamilnadu, Paysam of south in known as kheer in the rest of India etc. Little variation in the dish makes great change in it and enhance the taste too.

I am lucky enough to know more varieties of Indian food  because when I was in school I could learn some North Indian Dishes, when I was doing graduation I learnt all east Indian food, Got married to a typical Brahamin Iyengar family and I learnt Tamilian food. Nevertheless I still feel that I have to learn more more and more.Any way Today I made very simple dish of Orissa but I love to have this with Dal and Rice.Have a look
