Actually I don’t like cluster beans. But preparing in this way I can have… not only having I like this curry now. All the credit goes to my husband… coz my husband taught this curry how to prepare. Cluster beans is very good for health too. So I should thank my husband coz of him only I started eating this one.
Health point of view:
Cluster beans is very good for digestion. These are with low calories which is very effective in lowering the blood sugar and cholesterol levels. So diabetics, heart patients should take cluster beans very often.
