Winged Beans (Dambala) are a protein packed vegetable which I always like to use in my dishes.Other than Protein,it is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Do you know, it is even rich with calcium? This is also known as four angled beans.In Sri Lanka,we even consume the leaves of this plant.You can easily cook Dambala leaves as a mallum.Although I haven’t shared Dambala kola mallum recipe yet,check this Kathurumurunga leaves mallum recipe.Instead of Kathurumurunga leaves,use Dambala kola or winged beans leaves.

Ur recipe is nice.I also do the same way.but mix with carrot or potatoes (tiny cubes)

Thank you for this recipe. I omitted the green chilli, chilli powder and pandan leave and it still tasted good. The hubs loved it. Thank you again
Glad to know that it came out well.Yes,chili only ads the spice taste and you can avoid.Pandan leave is basically for good aroma and you can omit it always.Thanks for sharing this comment.I am really happy…
