Double Beans Curry / Masal

Double Beans is my favorite, but we dont get fresh ones often so buy it whenever I see in palamuthir nilayam. I've tried dried ones too which is readily available in most of the supermarkets but fresh ones are even more tasty. More than kuzhambu this curry is our family favorite.
