Mochai Poriyal Recipe

This is one of my all time favourite comforting lunch combination. Rice, mor kuzhambu and mochai poriyal - Easy and quick to fix for lunch. We have this bean(dried variety) stocked up always but this time got fresh mochai(Hyacinth or field bean) in the market so used it for this poriyal.
