Sautéed Green Beans, the Gujarati Way

These delicately spiced green beans are a lovely way to incorporate Surya Prana Nutrition Organic Turmeric and Black Pepper Powder into your diet. Green beans are a great source of vitamin K, which helps to maintain bone strength, and they also contain heart protective nutrients like vitamin A and C. I like to serve this dish with fresh millet and fenugreek rotli and a seasonal kachumber. Serve with some fluffy basmati rice or freshly made roti and a delicious lassi made with homemade yogurt.

  1. Finely chop the green beans.
  2. Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and asafoetida.
  3. Once the mustard seeds start to pop, add the chopped green beans, spices, crushed garlic, chopped tomato and salt.
  4. Toss all the ingredients in the pan until the green beans are coated evenly with the spices. Place the lid on the saucepan and cook for 8-10 minutes on a medium heat, stirring frequently to ensure the beans don’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  5. Next, add the frozen peas and cook for a further 3 minutes. Then add the toasted sesame seeds.
  6. Serve garnished with freshly chopped coriander.

Note: Use a Tawa or a frying pan to toast the sesame seeds until golden in colour.
