Green Beans Fry

Green Beans Fry

Beans fry is a quick fix meal when I run out of options or groceries or when I am just lazy to cook.
I usually buy green beans in bulk form cotco/sams, clean them and cut them into small pieces and store in the freezer.
That makes it even more easy to cook. No cutting/cleaning required. Just toss the veggies in oil and add the spices. Hardly takes 10 -15 minutes from start to finish.


  • Green Beans( cut into small pieces): 2 cups
  • Channa Dalia: 2 tbsp
  • Salt as required.
  • Red Chilli Powder: 1 tsp


  • Oil: 2 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds: 1 tsp
  • Cumin Seeds: 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder: 1/4 tsp
  • Broken Red Chillies: 2
  • Curry leaves: 4
  • Asoefetida(hing): a pinch


  1. Add oil to the pan and when the oil is heated, add the seasoning ingredients in the order mentioned.
  2. When the seeds start spluttering, add the chopped green beans and mix well. 
  3. Fry them cover with a lid for few minutes. 
  4. In a spice grinder, grind the channa dalia into fine powder and set it aside.
  5. Now, take off the lid and cook them for few more minutes until the beans are soft.
  6. now add the channa dalia powder to the beans and mix well.
  7. Add salt and red chilli powder.
  8. Serve with steamed rice.
