Fresh green beans are not only healthy  full of vitamins, minerals and micro nutrients but are also tasty. They are also very low in calories; one cup of green beans contains approx 34 calories.

So I prepared these sautéed green beans in Indian style. It’s an easy to cook dish that you can eat as a side with roti, parantha or use it as a filling in wraps. I can eat it just like that as anytime snack.

Greens beans also called string beans or French beans are free from saturated fat and are a rich source of dietary fiber (about 15% in 1 cup).                                                                                      

This lightly spiced dish is healthy, quick to make and tasty.

Here is the recipe.


  •     Washed and chopped french beans - 1 1/2 cups
  •     Salt - to taste
  •     Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
  •     Red chilli powder- 1/2 tsp or to taste
  •     Whole red chilli -1
  •     Garlic grated- 1/2 tsp


  •     Heat oil in a pan
  •     Add whole red chilli
  •     Add garlic and stir for few seconds
  •     Now add chopped beans, red chilli powder, turmeric and salt
  •     Cook on medium high heat for 5 minutes, keep stirring
  •     Reduce the heat to low and cook for few more minutes till.

Serve hot with chapati, parantha etc.

These are also a good source of Iron, calcium, vitamin C and Vitamin A.

Its so easy to include in your diet.
