How to Make Papdi chi bhaji (flat green beans)

  • Wash and dry the papdi. String each bean and break it into 2 or 3 even-sized pieces.
  • Heat oil in a wok and season it with mustard seed, asafoetida and turmeric. Then add the papdi and saute.
  • Sprinkle the goda masala, coriander and cumin seed powders over the vegetable and mix it.
  • Also, add the jaggery now.
  • Cook it covered for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Use a steel plate as a lid for the skillet and pour some water on it.
  • As this heats, it helps to cook the vegetable.
  • Finally, add the water on the lid to the bhaji if it requires more moisture.
  • However, if you require a gravy, allow the water to evaporate in the process of cooking.
  • Serve it hot.
