GREEN BEANS WITH SESAME SEEDS | SIDE DISH FOR ROTI

BEANS CURRY

Beans curry with sesame seeds
  I always make beans in this style or make Paruppu usili  .I have never attempted any version of beans curry that can go well with roti.  This recipe i saw in cook book,which my friend borrowed for me recently from the library. This tasted so nice and though we had that with rice, i am sure it will go well with Rotis too.
