BM #95 Week 1 Day 3 - 

Under the theme of Meal time dishes, here is the last one. This is a simple and delicious version which can be made in a jiffy. Add in the flavors which the family favors and a side dish is ready for the meal. 

This creamy sabji with Green beans was an accidental hit at home. My husband, in an attempt to sabotage my dinner prep plans threw in some cream into the sabji while it was cooking. It so happened that we all loved the addition of cream in the sabji and now it has become a defacto standard. He got all the praises for that 'creamy addition', though that was not the reaction he expected :). 

Ingredients - 

Green Beans 4 cups (I used the frozen French cut beans)
Onion sliced 1/2 cup
Ginger-Garlic Paste 1 tsp
Salt, Turmeric, Red Chili Powder as needed
Garam Masala, Chaat Masala as needed
Cream 1/4 cup
Seasoning (Butter 2 tsp, Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Jeera 1/2 tsp, Curry leaves few)

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients. After they dals are brown and the mustard seeds pop, add ginger-garlic paste and saute for a few seconds.

Then toss in the onions and let them saute until they are translucent.

Add in the green beans, sprinkle turmeric, cover and let them cook.

After they green beans are cooked through, after about 8-10 minutes, remove the cover and sprinkle salt, red chili powder, garam masala and chaat masala to taste.

Add in cream and mix well. Let it simmer for a couple of minutes and remove from heat.


Preparation Time 15-20 minutes
Serves 4-5

  2. Beans in creamy sauce sounds prefect to have with anything. Delicious side dish to try without any fail.

  3. Hahaha, that is hilarious. The creamy beans looks yum. With a simple rasam rice, this would go so well together.
