Butter beans pulao recipe

Butter beans pulao recipe adapted from Andhra style Pachi mirchi pulao. Spicy Butter beans pulao recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

Fresh Butter beans, I have very fond memories of my growing years. We get to the town market and whoever goes to the market, amma will ask them to buy that. She adds it to vegetable biryani and even while writing, I could recall that taste. Later we started getting it in the nearby market, we used to buy it frequently as we all love it.

Butter-beans

Amma makes butter beans kurma, butter beans curry, and also makes a simple sundal out of it. We love it more in the Vegetable Pulao | biryani. I used to get this in Singapore too, where I lived for 12 years. But after moving to Hongkong, I have never seen this in the Indian shop or local market. This year during my India visit, I happened to see this in the local market in Chennai and got a bunch of it and peeled it, and brought it home.

Also, when I visited Hyderabad this time, I happened to see the Pachamirchi pulao (green chili pulao) on a restaurant menu, so wanted to try a spicy version of the butter beans pulao. I have added curd in the pulao, so that it will balance the spiciness. Also, the addition of ghee neutralizes the spiciness. But still, this is a spicier version of the pulao. So reduce the chilis as per your taste.
