Beans-potato Masala

This simple and easy recipe was given to me by my SIL. She is a great cook. I tried this recipe and was very pleased with the outcome..So i thought i will post it in my blog.

The recipe is as follows:

1) Boil 1/2kg green beans (cut them into size of finger chips) and 2 medium sized potatoes(cut as cubes) with salt and turmeric powder

2) Grind the following ingredients raw into a masala paste: 1tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp Black pepper, 2tbsp shredded coconut, 2 green chilies, 2 cloves, 1 pod cardamom, 1/2 a bunch coriander leaves

3) In a kadai, add 1tsp oil, saute 1 medium sized chopped onion and 2 tomatoes,till tomatoes are mushy, and now add the boiled veggies(beans and potatoes) and then add the ground masala.

4) Let it cook till the raw smell disappears.
You can remove from fire either dry or if you want it to be a gravy, you can add 1/2 cup water and let it boil for for few minutes and then garnish and serve with roti.

your comments/suggestions are most welcome.
