Hello dear readers! Today I will share another traditional dish of g.s.b’s . It is called as “Jain Avare Koddel”. Anything that is seasoned with garlic is called as “Koddel” in Konkani. Jain Avaro is kind of white bean. It is easily available in Mangalore. The white bean has a  sprout like thing over the side. I will share the picture of the bean soon(edited). Normally Koddel is combined with tender jackfruit pieces during the season.
