Indian bread. This vegetarian curry with green beans adds some heat and
spice to your

Use fresh green beans for best results.
Servings: 3-4 Cooking Time: 25
Heat 5-6 tsp oil in a medium pan, and saute the
onions until translucent.
Add the tomatoes and saute until cooked. Add salt and
red chilli powder and saute for 2 minutes, and set aside to cool.
In a blender,
grind the sauteed onions and tomatoes with ginger,
cumin seeds, curry leaves, cilantro, and pepper corns with 1/4 cup of
6-7 tsp oil in a wide, shallow pan (such as a
pressure pan) and add the cinnamon, cardamom pods, and cloves, and fry
for a couple of seconds, and add the beans. Sprinkle some salt and 1
cup water, and
cover and cook on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until tender.
Pour the ground masala paste over the cooked beans,
and let simmer until the gravy thickens for about 2-3 minutes.
Remove the cinamon and cloves, and garnish the curry
Serve the beans gravy curry hot with rice or roti,
chapathi or poori.
Be sure to saute the onions until fully cooked to prevent the raw
flavor of onion from messing up the taste. The raw onions can also make
the curry taste a little bitter. Of course, if you don't mind a
slightly oniony flavor and want to take some shortcuts, grind the
onions and tomatoes raw along with the other spices and increase the
simmer time a couple of minutes.
