I have a recent love affair with paprika and turmeric powder, so I make use of them here. Do you know why split green beans are not green in color but yellow? It’s yellow in color because the husk has been removed. Split green beans are also called green gram or mung bean in its whole form I believe. Although this dish is categorize under side dish, I ate this as a whole for my brunch.
