How to make Punjabi Green Beans Fry

  1. To make Punjabi Garam Masala, in a pan on low flame dry roast cumin, coriander, green cardamom seeds, black peppercorns and garlic till fragrant. Leave to cool and grind until smooth powder.
  2. Take a heavy bottom cooking pan and heat ghee. To this add mustard seeds. When they start to pop, drop in carom seeds and red chili flakes. Saute for a minute on medium heat and add green beans (I used French Beans). Season with salt.
  3. Make a thick batter by adding few tablespoons of water to chickpea flour, 2 tbsp. garam masala and pinch of salt.
  4. When the beans are half done, bring the beans to centre of the pan and pour the above made chickpea batter along the sides of the pan. Don’t mix. On slow flame cook for 2 minutes, without stirring.
  5. Now break up the batter lightly using ladle. The batter would have firmed by now to look like little nuggets. Continue cooking on low flame for another 2 minutes and then combine beans into this.
  6. Adjust salt and cook till nuggets turn brown and beans are completely cooked. Serve by garnishing with coriander leaves.
