Achinga Payar Chakkakuru Mezhukkupuratti

Achinga payar or yard beans is a very common vegetable grown in Kerala and it is a healthy and delicious vegetable. It tastes best in stir fries and I have already posted one recipe with yard beans and raw plantain. This is another combo with chakka kuru/jack fruit seeds.
