These flat, green pods, also known as helda beans or Indian green beans, are a delightful addition to Indian cuisine. Averaging around 5 inches (13 cm) in length, valor beans offer a satisfying crunch and a slightly bitter green bean taste that complements spices beautifully in sabzi, curries, and dals.

Just like green beans, young and tender valor beans are easy to prepare. Trim both ends, remove the string if necessary, and cut the pods into bite-sized, 1-inch pieces. The good news? The entire pod is edible, so there's no need to discard the shell.

For optimal freshness, store your Melissa's Valor Beans in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. They'll stay delicious for up to 1-2 weeks.
