French Beans Fry in Mustard Paste





Winter is all around here in India. Well, nothing can beat fresh french beans straight from the garden πŸ˜‰. These are so easy to grow and highly productive as well. French bean is one of the most popular and widely grown vegetables. But most people who include french beans as one of their favorite vegetables probably don't know how healthy these are. They simply just like the taste and the crunch. Like other vegetables, french beans are a good source of fiber, potassium, folate and are an excellent source of protein, iron, and zinc. 







Here in this post I have come up with a side dish using these french beans fry in mustard paste. Basically anyone can say that this is a odia touch to the french beans. The paste used here is called as Besar in odia language which is prepared using some mustard seeds, cumin seeds, garlic cloves and whole red chilies. The french beans are cut into two halves and fried along with some potato wedges first. And finally the mustard paste is added to the dish and allowed to cook till the potato wedges are done completely. This goes perfectly fit as a side dish with rice-dal combo. Also it is completely vegan and gluten free side dish. So do try soon 😊
