Butter Beans Salna|Butter Beans Parotta Salna

Have you ever tasted parottas with fingerlicking salna when the weather is down, if not seriously you are missing something. Salna and parotta makes a prefect pair and one of most famous salna is chicken salna, the roadside shops serves this fingerlicking side dish with hot flaky parathas. Usually people prepare salna with mixed vegetables,eggs or chicken, for a change today i prepared this salna with some pressure cooked butter beans.We love parathas very much especially for the salna we get from the restaurants, coz this salna tastes extremely delicious with idlies or dosas. Obviously we buy less number of parottas and ask for more salna.

Coming to this butterbeans salna, this side dish gets ready very much easily, you can go for any beans if you dont have or dont like butterbeans.Along with beans you can also add veggies too if you want to make your salna more healthy and tasty,however salnas can be made with anything eventhough my favourite is always Egg Salna.Today is the first thursday and its time to post a vegan dish for Vegan Thursdays, an vegan event running twice a month, am posting this fingerlicking,nutritious butter beans salna for the event.
