Sem phalli Aloo Vadi Sabzi | Broad Beans Potato Badi Curry

Sem ki phalli, aloo aur vadi ki sabzi or broad beans, potato wadi (badi) curry is Chhattisgarhi style curry popular in my in-law place where sem phalli or broad beans (Chikkudukaya/avarakkai) is one of the favorite vegetable. My Mil does amazing gardening and we have semi plants unfortunately whenever it's broad beans season I am not there to relish home grown, organic semi :(. Semi or avarakkai is delicious vegetable cooked in any way.

This is proper Chhattisgarhi style curry along with vadi but you can skip vadi if you don't have it and prepare only as broad beans potato curry or also add brinjal, cauliflower along it taste yum either way. We can serve this curry with roti, paratha or steamed rice, days you don't have to cook day then make this curry and with rice it's yummy combo. I know it's not very presentable curry but it's rustic and delicious. I posted Masala Vadi (badi) recipe and here the curry using same wadiya.
