Simple beans bhaji with new potatoes from my kitchen garden.
1 lb/ 500gms french beans, chopped into 1 cm pieces,
1/2 small onion, chopped,
2 small new potatoes, diced, (I used potatoes from my kitchen garden),
1/2 tsp turmeric powder,
1/2 tsp garam masala(mild),
2 tbsp grated coconut.
1 tbsp oil,
1/2tsp mustard seeds,
1/2 tsp cumin seeds,
1 tsp salt.
- Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the mustard and cumin seeds and let them splutter, then add onion and diced potato and the salt.
Mix well and add few tbsps of water, cover the pan and reduce heat to low and let the potato cook slightly.
- Next add the chopped french beans and the rest of the ingredients.
- Cover and let the beans and the potato cook till tender.
I added dry coconut to the bhaji. I usually add dry coconut for bhajis and let it cook with the vegetable so that way the dry coconut gets moisture and flavour from the vegetables and the spices.
