Recently, I have been searching for a bean that I used to often eat in Malaysia - a bean that doesn't look like a regular bean, but has four frilly sides to it. It is called the Winged Bean or the Four-Angled Bean. It is a lovely, crunchy bean that is really delicious stir-fried with a spicy chilli, garlic and shrimp paste mix.
After searching for seeds online, I finally stumbled across the Asparagus Pea, which looks identical to the Winged Bean. So, the question is - is there a difference between the Winged Bean and the Asparagus Pea?
