I get many requests for day to day simple recipes. I avoid posting some of my favorite dishes thinking they are way too simple. I have to try and bring these comfort foods to the blog more often.
This is my aayi’s recipe. She is not finding time to post anything these days, so I thought of posting it. The ginger and onion give a great flavor. Please note, it is not the traditional Konkani Talaasani, but made like talaasani, so I mentioned the name. We usually don’t use mustard-curry leaves seasoning when we use onion in a dish. I have added both here as I like the curry leaf aroma. I make this atleast once a week and aayi tells me it is same in her kitchen.
The beans can be cooked separately and then added to onions or they can be directly added to onion and fried till cooked. I make it both ways and both come out really well. By second method, beans can be fried till they become slightly crispy, but it requires more oil.
2 cups green beans chopped
1/2 cup onions chopped
1 tea spn finely chopped ginger
1 tea spn chilli powder
1/2 tea spn mustard seeds + 4-5 curry leaves (optional)
Heat oil and add mustard seeds, when they start popping, add curry leaves(optional).
Add onions and ginger and fry till they are brownish.
Now add the beans (cooked separately or uncooked). If using uncooked beans, use more oil and fry the beans till beans are cooked.
Add salt, chilli powder. Mix and fry for few more minutes.
Serves : 2-3
Preparation time : 20mins
