Beans Mezhukkupuratti / Sautéed Green beans with Garlic



Green Beans !!! Who can resist those fresh and green vegetable piled up, in almost all the grocery stores. I couldn't since the start of summer. Every time i come back from my grocery shopping , i sure do have one bag of this fresh produce. This is an everyday recipe in most of the households in India and there is no magic going on with the recipe here .Its just boiling , and sauteing.After days of luxurious and rich food, this dish sure does win your heart for its simplicity and unexpected taste, with an optimum flavor of Garlic and a lil heat of green chilies . Sautéed or stir fried, Green beans has become a staple in my kitchen,mainly because its a quick fix for any meal.


Ingredients:- 
Green Beans - 250 gms
Small onion chopped - 1/4 cup
Garlic - 4 cloves
Green chili chopped - 3
Curry leaves
Mustard seeds
Salt to taste
Oil

Method
Wash green beans thoroughly in cold water and cut the edges. Chop it  or cut it diagonally to
1 1/2 inch pieces.
Cook covered , by adding 1 cup water and chopped green chiles, till it is done .
In a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle , crush garlic and small onions.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they pop up add crushed garlic and small onions
and saute for 2 minutes or till the raw smell disappears.
Add cooked green beans to the pan and saute for another 7-8 minutes.
Serve warm!!!
Note:- There are several variations of making beans mezhukkupuratti. Sometimes i add chili powder and turmeric powder and even crushed peppercorns along with this.Use it as to suite your taste buds :)
