Green Beans Fry/Beans Palya

This is not an authentic South Indian dish.  The actual beans palya is prepared in a different way.  Here, I am adding a few spice powders to get a flavourful fry.

Preparation Time - 10 mins
Cook Time - 15 mins
Serves - 2

Measurements & Ingredients:
  • Green Beans - washed and cut into small pieces
  • Green chillies - 3-4, cut lenght wise
  • Onion - 1 small, cut into small pieces
  • Oil - 2 tspns
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tspn
  • Bengal gram(channa dal) - 3/4 tspn
  • Black gram(urad dal) - 1/2 tspn
  • Asafoetida - a pinch
  • A few curry leaves
  • MTR multipurpose curry powder - 2 tspns

 Heat oil in a pan.  To this add mustard seeds, channa dal, ural dal, green chillies, curry leaves and hing.  Then add oinion and fry on low heat until it turns pink.

Now add the green beans, salt, a little water and cook covered for 10 mins on low medium heat.  Stir occasionally.

 After 10 mins, add the MTR multipurpose curry powder(or any curry powder you have) and mix and cook uncovered for another 5 mins.  Sprinkle a little water if necessary.
The Spicy beans fry is ready.  You can serve this with chapathi/roti or rice.
