Green field beans, long-grained rice and fresh green herbs, cooked in an earthen pot… the experience is truly heavenly! lilva or fresh vaal is available only during a season that lasts three to four months, so make the most of it while it lasts. The delicious green masala used in this recipe is truly delectable, so if you are reminded of it when lilva is not in season, make this rice with cauliflower and green peas instead. It tastes equally good.
