Masala Beans with Fenugreek

Aren't you all sick of same style of green beans and potatoes?   Would you all want to try same old Green beans in a new style and taste?  I had come across this recipe in one of the cook books a long time back, when I say long time, it is definitely good over 9 years which is before I got married.  It became my favorite the first time I tried it.  Its been while I made this so kind of vaguely recalled the recipe, but still gave it a try..It was absolutely delicious…
