French Beans Curry is the perfect healthy and yet tasty curry to be had with rice or rotis or naan.

Firstly, you need to take cumin seeds and add them to heated oil and add green chillies and onions when the cumin seeds splutter. Sauté the mixture till the onions are translucent before adding the potatoes and French beans, add a little salt, toss them for a minute or two and cover the vegetable.

Allow it to cook until both the potatoes and beans are half-cooked; be sure to keep stirring the veggies to avoid them burning. Next add the tomatoes and masalas such as pepper powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, and turmeric powder, and fry until the tomato is cooked. Add a little bit of water before covering and cooking for 5 more minutes on low heat.

Remove from heat once the gravy you need is of the correct consistency. Serve hot with puri, paratha, roti, or rice.
