To begin making the Aloo Beans Sabzi Recipe, we will first cook the potatoes and beans separately.
Once the potatoes are cooked, allow it to cool and remove the skin and dice them into chunks. Keep the steamed beans and potatoes aside while we proceed to make the masala for the sabzi.
Heat a teaspoon of oil in a heavy bottomed pan; add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds and allow them to crackle. Next add the chopped curry leaves, turmeric powder, asafoetida powder, coriander powder, red chilli powder to the oil. Stir for a few seconds.
Finally add the cooked potatoes and steamed green beans into the sabzi masala, sprinkle salt and give it a stir. Cover the pan, turn the heat to low and simmer the Aloo Beans Sabzi for about 3 to 4 minutes, so all the masalas get well coated with the sabzi. Check the salt and spice levels, and adjust to suit your taste.
