  • 2 cups Chopped Beans of 1-inch size
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1 tbsp Chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 2 tbsp Sesame seeds roasted


  • Boil the beans, strain and keep aside.
  • Take oil in a thick bottomed pan and heat. Once the oil reaches the desired temperature add the boiled beans and sauté for a min. The flame should be on medium-high.
  • Keep the flame on low and add turmeric, salt and mix well. Cook for 2 minutes with closed lid. This helps the beans absorb the salt.
  • Now add chilli powder and mix well. Keep the flame on medium-high and toss them. Avoid using spatula and tossing will evenly cook and cover the beans with all the ingredients added.
  • Turn off the flame and sprinkle the roasted sesame seeds on top. Toss once more and transfer the contents to a serving bowl.


* This is a quick fry. The cook time for this recipe is just 5 – 7 mins. So make sure you are alert while cooking and you don’t end up burning the food.
** You can keep the roasted sesame seeds handy as they have longer shelf life than the fresh ones. Roast the sesame seeds on a low flame with continuous tossing until nice aroma. Let them cool and store in an airtight container. This can be used instantly in any preparations.
