Gujerati green beans

Serves 4

  • 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
  • Pepper
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).

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.
