Winged beans – also known as asparagus bean, Goa bean, princess pea or the four-angle bean – are very rich in nutrients. They are rich in Vitamin A and C, include Vitamin B and E and essential minerals like iron, manganese, copper, calcium, phosphorous and magnesium. It is a good plant-protein source for vegetarian or vegan, and an excellent folate source for women trying to conceive and pregnant women.

I like these beans for the mild taste and crunch when cooked just right. I like them a little spicy so I have to separate my portion and my girl’s if I want to add some chilli padi.

These beans can be easily found at local supermarkets, and they are inexpensive. They are very easy to wash and prepare.

This is a quick, delicious and healthy dish that takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and cook.
