  • 4Servings


  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 tsp.)
  • 1 tsp. garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp. brown mustard seeds
  • 3/4 lb. green beans, trimmed and cut in half (about 4 cups)
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice


Combine oil, garlic, garam masala, mustard seeds, green beans, salt and 1/4 cup water in large skillet. Cover, and simmer over medium-low heat 5 minutes, or until beans are just tender.

Uncover skillet, and increase heat to medium high. Cook 3 minutes, or until liquid has evaporated. Sauté 3 minutes more, or until beans start to brown. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice, and serve.
