  • Frying time: 6 minutes.
  • Cooking time: 4 minutes.
  • Total time: 14 minutes.

My family sometimes get fed-up with same “potatoes and beans” and we need change. I chose to prepare a delicious recipe which can be made within few minutes; “French beans with yogurt”. A dish strongly flavored with asafoetida. We enjoyed a lot with Phulka and cucumber raita.

The flavor you get is awesome, when a pinch of asafoetida sprinkled into the hot ghee or oil for tempering.

Asafoetida goes very well with Indian cuisine. It has numerous benefits to health; it has medicinal value as digestive property, and one of the favorite spices…

In Indian custom during many occasions we don’t use onion and garlic for our dishes; we use asafoetida as alternate.

Ingredients:

  • Fresh/frozen beans: 250 gm
  • Cumin: ½ teaspoon
  • Asafoetida: ½ teaspoon
  • Chili powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Turmeric powder: ½ teaspoon
  • Coriander powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Mustard Oil/any cooking oil: 2 tablespoon
  • Salt: 1 teaspoon (as per taste)
  • Curd( yogurt): 2 tablespoon
  • Coriander leaves: 2 tablespoon (chopped)

Preparation:

  1. Microwave beans for 2-3 minutes on high, keep aside.
  2. Beat curd, keep aside.

Method:

  1. Heat oil in wok/fry pan, add cumin seed; sputter for few seconds, lower the flame, add asafoetida, coriander powder, chili powder, salt and turmeric powder, stir fry for few seconds, add beans.
  2. Stir fry on medium flame for couple of minutes; add curd and continue to stir it until it begins to boil (to avoid cuddling of curd).
  3. Cook on low flame for couple of minutes with lid on, put off the flame; “Beans with Yogurt and Asafoetida” is ready, transfer into serving bowl, if in hurry you need not to garnish, taste is awesome itself.
  4. Serve with Lachcha paratha, Roti, Rice…
