Aloo Bean ( Potatoes and Green Bean)

I recently discovered this wonderful recipe for Punjabi Aloo Bean. What I love most about this dish is that it does not have the traditional Tomato and Onion based gravy, which makes it taste unique. Its a wonderful sauteed dish that enhances the green bean and potatoes flavor and textures.


Totally different flavor than many subzis

  • Green beans (French beans) – 2½ cups, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • Potatoes – 1 cup, cut into square pieces
  • Oil – 2 tablespoons
  • Mustard seeds – ¼ teaspoon
  • Cumin seeds – ½ teaspoon
  • Turmeric powder – ¼ teaspoon
  • Cumin powder – ½ teaspoon
  • Coriander powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Red chili powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Salt – to taste
  • Garam masala – ½ teaspoon
  • Lemon juice – 1 teaspoon
  1. Heat the oil in pan on medium heat. Once hot add mustard seeds, let them pop. Then add cumin seeds, let them sizzle a bit.
  2. Add aloo and beans along with salt, turmeric, coriander, cumin, red chili powder. Mix them well so all the spices and oil is coated to vegetables.
  3. Cover the pan and cook till veggies are cooked. Keep stirring in between to make sure that it is not sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  4. Once they are tender, add garam masala powder and mix.
  5. Finally drizzle some lemon juice, stir it. Subzi is ready to serve.


    Great with Roti and Yogurt
