1teaspoonOil + ⅓ teaspoon Salt + ½ teaspoon Chili Powder
2 - 3 teaspoon Kolhapuri MasalaI used 3 tsps
Wash and cut beans into ¼” pieces.
Heat oil in a pan.
Add green beans, salt and mix.
Cover and cook until beans is almost cooked, about 6 – 8 minutes on low flame. Stir a few times for even cooking.
Uncover, add kolhapuri masala, chili powder and continue cooking until beans is cooked and fried, about 4 – 6 minutes.
Serve with rice or roti.
I used 3 teaspoon of masala and would recommend using less masala and add more chili powder. Spices in the Kolhapuri masala is a bit overpowering when used in large quantities in a vegetable stir fry. Adjust the masala to taste. I recommend use 1 teaspoon chili powder and less Kolhapuri masala.
I did not use onion, garlic, green chilies and curry leaves as I wanted to stick to 3 ingredients.You can use all these ingredients or few of these for additional flavor, though the stir fried tasted just fine even without these.
