For very long time beans fry was alien to me. If I do something with beans, its either
Beans Paruppusili or Beans with coconut curry or simple tempering with half boiled beans.
But once I started making fry out of beans, I fell in love with it :) So if any of you are like me, you can give this a try once..
I really make it more spicy adding more chilli powder. It goes hand in hand with sambar.
French cut beans - 2 cups
Oil - 1 Tbsp
Red Chilli powder - 3/4 sp
Sambar powder - 3/4 sp
Take a wide tava, add beans, add 2 Tbsp of water and cook closed.
(If frozen, need not add water)
Once they are half cooked, add salt and add a spoon of oil and saute for couple of minutes. Leave tava open.
Fry till fully done, add oil as required, finally add chilli powder/sambar powder, saute for couple of minutes.
Serve hot with rice or as side dish.
