  • First we need to dry roast all the masala. Heat a pan and add peanuts, coriander seeds, cumin seeds and poppy seeds. Dry roast them for 2 minutes. Be careful to not burn them. Take it off the pan and allow it to cool. Then transfer to a mixer grinder and blitz to a smooth paste along with an onion. Now heat oil in the same pan. Temper mustard seeds and once the crackle, add urad dal and chana dal. Fry for 30 seconds. Then add dried red chillies, minced garlic, ginger paste, curry leaves and slit green chillies. Saute them for a minute and then add chopped potatoes with salt. Cook till the potatoes are done. Then add turmeric powder and tomatoes to the mix. Continue to saute covered till the tomatoes are cooked. Then add the ground paste and fry for a minute or two. Lastly add parboiled green beans, mix it all together, adjust salt and add little water to get desired consistency. Cook covered for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve with any Indian bread.
