This is just as simple as it sounds.
Long beans are a great vegetable when they are fresh and tender. I wanted to make a green vegetable to go along with the gatte ki sabzi meal (previous post has recipe). Had these beans in the icebox.
Chop the long beans into about 1 inch pieces. Wash well.
To a pan, add about 1-2 tsp of oil. Add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add a tsp each of channa daal and urad daal. Add 1-2 dry red chillies. Fry for a min and then add the cut and washed beans. Add salt to taste. Add about 3/4 of a cup water and reduce the flame to low and cover the pan with a lid. Let this cook slowly. Stir it once every couple of mins. Cook till the beans are well done. Don;t add too much water - just enough to partially cover the beans and cook it - too much water would make the veggie all squishy.
This is a simple yet tasty dish. Serves as a good side to parathas or with rice.
Here's my plate with the masala rotis, gatte ki sabzi and the long beans subji.
