Winged Bean, Four-angled Bean, Goa Bean, Manila Bean – ถั่วพู

One Member of the big bean family is this strange looking winged bean. Not only the pod is square-looking, but also the seeds inside are covered in the four angled capsules. Like most of the beans, the plant is short-live whine that need some support to climb on. They bear light violet flowers and bear fruits (beans) all year. Winged bean is crispy and dry, without strong smell like other bean, and has less water inside.

Winged bean could be eaten fresh with shrimp paste or use in winged bean salad or slice them thin and add into the mixture to make fishcake or add in the curry.
