Aloo Beans Sabzi | Potato Green Beans Fry

Potato and green beans fry is a simple no fuss curry that can be made in just 15 minutes. All you need is potatoes, beans and some basic spices from our masala dabba. The first time I had this combo was in a small hotel in Bangalore, in their thali meal. I loved the combination of potatoes and beans, and since then I have been making this sabzi frequently. If you are looking for a quick side dish for roti or dal-chawal, this one is just perfect!

Aloo beans sabzi is healthy and is great to carry for lunch with some roti / pulao. Its a no-onion no-garlic recipe, so ideal to make during vrat days. Green beans or french beans are low in calories and a good source of fiber and vitamins. Potato is one such vegetable that pairs up with any vegetable beautifully and makes the dish hearty. Serve this sabzi hot with roti / phulka, curd and some fresh salad for a tasty and wholesome meal.
