Indian Beans (Surti Papdi)
Indian Surti beans are long, flat, and slightly curved, growing up to twenty centimetres in length. The shell is green, smooth, and soft to the touch. Inside the pod, the fiber is moist and contains three to six oval-shaped seeds which can be tan, white-green, or green depending on the variety. Most surti Broad beans have strings that should be removed, although some varieties have been developed to eradicate the strings. Indian Broad beans are aromatic, sweet, and tender when cooked.
