Beans Ki Subji: Indian Style Beans Stir Fry: Healthy Side


Long weekend is coming closer, which reminds me what are you guys doing? Summer parties, BBQ or spring cleaning? Whatever it is, if a time comes when you are in no mood to cook or just want to have simple meal or wish to have a healthy side with your main dishes then you MUST try this stir fry. When I made this subji, I literally had 15 minutes. Quickly I whipped the complete dinner- yellow dal in pressure cooker, steamed rice in microwave and this beans curry on the hob.
