Curried green beans


You will need
A big bunch of green beans
1 small onion chopped
1 small tomato chopped
a handful coriander leaves
1 tsp. coriander seeds
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 tsp. garlic paste
1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
1tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp. asefotida
1 tbsp olive oil

In a blender blend the onion, tomato, coriander leaves, coriander and cumin seeds, turmeric powder and the garlic paste. It will look like this.


Slit the beans lengthwise and then chop into 1 inch pieces.


Heat a saucepan on medium heat. Add olive oil and mustard seeds. Once the seeds splatter, add the asafetida and the chopped beans. Sprinkle some water and cook the beans covered until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the masala (curry) paste and cook until the water evaporates.

Serve hot with poli (flat bread).
