Trim the beans and cut them into 1" lengths. Blanch (or use frozen
beans), drain, cool, set aside. (ask me if you do not know how to
blanch. I use a microwave for this).
- 1 lb green beans
- 4 Tbsp oil
- 1 Tbsp whole black mustard seed
- 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- 1 hot dried red chili, coarsely crushed
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp sugar
Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add mustard seed. When they
begin to pop, add garlic and stir till light brown. Add red pepper
and stir a few seconds.
Add green beans, sugar and salt, stir to mix. Turn heat to medium
low, stir and cook about 8 minutes or till they taste spicy. Add
pepper, mix and serve.
