Green Beans are added to onions, green chillies, ginger & garlic and cooked with a special blend of spices to make this delicious EI green beans

This home style recipe is so quick and easy to prepare. The beans are enhanced with some bullion cube and East Indian masala. Here are the ingredients and steps to make this recipe!

Green beans are a notable source of the flavonolglucuronidemiquelianin,[11] an antioxidant in humans.[12][13](Wikipedia). Green beans can be eaten raw so this is a great recipe to make as it doesn’t need a lot of cooking. I usually cook this 5 – 7 mins but I like to stop cooking it while it’s still a vibrant green.

Even though this recipe uses my fave East Indian Masala you can substitute 1 tsp Chilli powder, 1/2 Cumin powder & 1/2 tsp Turmeric powder. If you would like to purchase this spice blend you can contact two vendors that I know personally.
