This yard long beans also called as asparagus bean, Chinese long bean,garter bean, snake bean, yard long bean.

Barbati / yard long bean recipe:
preparation&cooking: 30-40 minutes
1bundle serves :4 members


  • 1/2 bundle long yard(chop them to 2 inches of  size)
  • Finely chopped onions
  • chopped tomatos
  • chopped  green chillies
  • Turmeric powder/Pasupu 1/2 tsp
  • Chilli powder  1tsp
  • Salt  to taste

Talimpu / tadka:

Oil  2 to 3  tspoons
Garlic 3 cloves
Dried chillies 3
Avalu/ Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
Chena dal/pachi senga pappu     1/2  tsp
Urad dal /minapappu 1/2 tsp
Jeera/Jeelakarra  1/2 tsp
Onions  2
Curry leafs
Green chilly 3 (based on    spicyness u can eat)

  • Heat oil in a heavy based pan or pressure cooker..add smashed garlic and let it fry for 1 minute..then add dry chillies, let them turn little dark..then add the tadka ingredients. once the mustard seeds starts bursting then  add finely chopped onions , chilli n curry leafs.
  • Fry till the onions get their colour changed slightly ,now add chopped tomatos to it..stir it finely for 2 minutes..now add the chopped beans to it..stir finely..add salt, chilli powder n turmeric..
  • Till now all the cooking process should b done in the low flame..after adding salt to the beans increase flame ..so that the salt gets melted and ozzes  liquid out from vegetables that is required for cooking...wait  for 3 to 4 minutes in high flame..u can observe the beans completely rolled in oil . As  we added more onions and  tomato's  we can get nice gravy.. now reduce the flame to low or below medium..then place the lid...if u r using pressure cooker then just wash ur hand in the curry (pour  1/4 cup of water) n  close the cooker n place the weight..let the cooker gives single whistle in flame ..now you can off the stove n check for the softness of the vegetable.

If  you are cooking in an open pan , Let it cook for 20 to 25 mints in low flame..since we are cooking in low flame..curry wont get burned n more over our gravy will be well prepared . Now off the flame  n stir the curry nicely...taste  to see the correctness of salt..that's it! our barbati curry is done..serve it hot...enjoy eating...  🙂
