Beans aloo sabzi recipe | Punjabi aloo beans sabzi

Beans aloo sabzi is a popular dry sabzi in punjabi cusine. They make Gajar mutter sabzi, aloo capsicum sabzi too. When i went as a judge for a cookery competition here last month, i happened to met a punjabi lady, who was also in the judging panel. I came to know that she is a wonderful cook. She is very humble and very soft spoken. When i asked her for the recipe of this dry punjabi sabzi, she patiently explained to me the recipe. Thank you pooja for the recipe. I tried it out the next day itself and it turned out very well. Try out this easy punjabi beans aloo subzi as an accompaniment for roti| rice. You can make a dal also as the sabzi is a dry one.

  • In a pan add oil and add the cumin seeds(jeera). Add the grated ginger and saute it for a while.
  • Add the chopped beans to the pan.
  • Add the chopped potatoes to this. No need to boil the potatoes, just add raw. 
  • Add in the salt, turmeric powder, red chili powder and coriander powder. 
  • Add 1/2 cup of water and mix well. Cover it and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Check whether the aloo is cooked or not. If it is cooked, take out the cover and cook for few minutes till the water, if any, evaporates. 
  • Add roasted cumin powder to this. I roasted little jeera on a dosa pan and pound that using mortar and pestle. 
  • If adding garam masala add it now. 
  • Mix well and serve hot with rotis or rice.
