Kothavarangai Thuvaran is one of the common poriyal in my kitchen every week. I love doing Kothavarangai Usili, but this thuvaran is the favourite dish for all. So, I prefer to do thuvaran instead of usili. This is a simple poriyal which you could do it quicker. Some bigger Cluster beans takes more time to cook, so I would prefer to cook the cluster beans in pressure cooker. Its a simple and tasty poriyal and would be a great accompaniment for any rice varieties.
