Beans Curry - 1

This is a common receipe which everyone of you know very well. Might be wondering, then why this receipe? Its for the beginners. When I was a new cook few years back, I used to spoil this curry every time, atleast for 10 or 20 times. But now I am doing good with this one. Here is the receipe.

  1. Green Beans - 2 cups
  2. Salt to taste
  3. Oil - 1 tsp
  4. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  5. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  6. Red chillies - 1
  7. Asafoetida Powder - a pinch

First, Wash the raw beans and chop it into small pieces. Take a microwave safe vessel and put the beans in it and microwave it for 3 mts. first. Take it out and stir it and again keep it for 3 to 5 mts. Make sure beans is fully cooked. Now take a pan, pre heat oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add urad dhall and red chillies and fry it to golden brown. Add asafoetida powder in it and now add the cooked grean beans to it. Stir it once and add salt to it. Mix it thoroughly and do not mash it. Turn off the stove. Now green beans curry is ready to serve.

Vidhya, I know so many recipes using beans. I have cooked them also but somehow, the taste of beans is not accepted by my system. But, I will sure try out this south Indian style of cooking beans. May be I will like it.
