BEANS TALASANI

BEANS TALASANI

In our GSB cooking, Talasanis are like our upkaris or vegetable stir frys, but they generally require a little more oil. Elsewhere in this blog you will find the recipe for Tendle Talasani which is made with gherkins.

For making any talasani, you can use either red chilli powder or red chillies broken into halves for seasoning. I have chosen to use red chilli powder. As is evident, you can vary the amount of red chilli powder as per your taste.

This Beans Talasani goes well with rice and dhal.




Ingredients:
  • French Beans, 250 gms
  • Garlic pods, 10
  • Chilli Powder, 1 tsp or Red Chillies (broken into halves), 2
  • Salt, to taste
  • Oil, 1 tbsp
Method:

Wash and de-string the beans. Cut them diagonally into 1 " pieces.
Lightly crush the garlic pods
Heat oil in a thick-bottomed kadhai, and when it gets heated add the crushed garlic and saute till they give off a good aroma and they turn golden brown
Lower the heat and add the chilli powder
Mix well and take care the chilli powder does not get burnt
Add the beans and salt, mix well and cook covered over medium flame, (there is no need to add water) stirring from time to time till the beans get cooked
