Butter beans and Bibbe humman

Humman is a traditional G.S.B curry flavoured with asafoetida/hing. Basically Humman is prepared spicy and is strongly flavoured with hing. My Aayi used to prepare this often with potatoes. The same recipe is used for prawns too which we call as ‘sungta hinga uda or humman’.  You may check the recipe here of Sungta hinga uda and click here for Neeli hinga uda . You may also prepare this curry only with tender cashewnuts, potatoes etc .
