Dish-A-Day: 10/14/2012 - Yard Long Beans Curry

Prologue: Go here.

10/14/2012: Yard Long Beans Curry - I used to see these Long and Thin Beans that are almost a yard in length at the Indian Grocery store I frequent to. Was not sure what to cook with them and how to. However, I do make the regular Beans into a spicy curry in South Indian style. So I thought why not use the same recipe for the same. End result was definitely yummy!
