Yam with Long Beans stir fry is very tasty vegetarian stir fry which is made by the combination of Yam and Long Beans. We are making different dishes with Yam and Long Beans but this combination is little bit different from others. Yam and Long Beans are my favourite vegetables and I used these vegetables to make different dishes. This two combination is very health and very tasty and it is an excellent combination with hot plain Rice for lunch. Keralites need some stir fry dishes for their lunch so this dish will be very useful to them. These two vegetables contains a lot of health benefits so we can get double benefits in one dish. It is little bit spicy dishy but also very useful to children and you can adjust the quantity of Red Chilli powder based on your taste. This dish is looking attractive and its main flavour is Cumin seeds flavour. To get a variety taste I used Coriander Powder here and it has the mixed spice of Red Chilli powder and Black Pepper Powder. It is completely natural, healthy and traditional dish.

Fish molly is also known as fish stew. It has different name in different places. We can write it as fish molee. It is completely a traditional tasty curry. I can say that it is entirely different from other fish curries because its colour and method of preparation is completely different from others. It can make it by using any type of fishes. Better to make it with king fish but here I have used Mackerel fish because I couldn't get king fish. Usually we are making spicy red colour fish curry in houses and hotels. Keralites can't eat rice without fish curries or dishes because fishes are the main side dish of their daily day life. It will be available in some standard hotels and it has a royal effect. It will be a special and variety item to everyone. Its tasty is very nice and different from other fish curries. We need not to add chilli powder to make this and also we need to fry the fish before making this curry. Mainly it is preparing by Christians or in Christian houses.…
