Fresh green beans are low in calories and has no saturated fat along with high dietary fiber and vitamin A. Here is US, greens beans are consumed boiled, sautéed or in a form of casserole. There are so many different ways to make it.  You may also want to try Masala Beans with Fenugreek.  I love them with just plain white rice or paratha.  Do try it and you will fall in love with it.  Thats my promise to you…. heart

 

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 pounds green beans, washed and cut

Directions:

Cut the green beans into small pieces and wash n set aside.  Now cut the potatoes into medium sized cubes and leave it in the water until ready to use.

In a kadhai, heat the oil.  Add cumin seeds and let it splatter.  Now add the potato cubes and cover it for a few minutes and let it cook half way.  Add the washed green beans along with the all the spices except amchoor.  Mix it well and once again cover it and cook on a slow to medium heat.

Uncover it after 5-7 minutes and see if the potatoes are cooked. If they are then cook it uncovered for few additional minutes until the color of the beans change from bright green to a dull green.  Add amchoor at this time and mix it well.  If the potatoes are not cooked then cover for a few more minutes.
