ongbean are a good source of protein, vitamin A, iron, phosphorus, and potassium, and a very good source for vitamin C, magnesium, and manganese. In spite of all these benefits longbean or Boro is one of those vegetable which doesn't get much space in our fridge.

There is lot of difference between Indian Longbean and the one's we get in Singapore, the first thing you will notice is the size and texture. Indian longbeans are smaller and softer compare to what we get here but neither the less we buy longbean once in a while and most of the time I prepare the same thing.
