Beans Palya - Sauteed Beans Fry

Beans Palya or Sautéed Beans Fry is one of the most common dishes in the kannadiga household, at least in mine! This is so easy and so famous, be it any family event like weddings, naming ceremony, house warming ceremony..this Palya finds its way on the platter.

If it were to be beans palya for breakfast, on the previous night you would find my mother sitting in front of the TV with a chopping knife and board. She would snip-off the bean tips on either side and chop them (beans) to thinly slice. She says that beans palya with very finely chopped slices makes it look and taste better. She never approves if I cut the beans to say even 5cm apart! Phew!!! I am sure she would disapprove if she saw these pics! (I could blame it on the macro mode. Smarty pants aren’t I?)


Ingredients:

French Beans: about 1/2 Lbs or Kg
Onions: 1 Small (Optional)
Green Chillies: 3-4 as per taste
Ginger: 1 small peice
Garlic: 2-3 clove
Grated Coconut: For garnishing. About 2-3 spoons

For tempering:
Oil: 2-3 spoon
Mustard Seeds, Jeera, Channa Dal, Urad Dal, Red Chillies, Curry Leaves and a pinch of Asafoitida

Method:

Wash and remove the ends of the beans. Finely chop and keep aside.

Chop Onions and green chillies.

In a Cooking Pan, heat oil and and temper it with the above mentioned ingredients.

Add ginger, garlic, green chillies and onions one after the other Stiring in between.

Saute till the onions are tender.

Add Beans and saute for another minute.

Add about 1/2 cup of water and salt as per taste. Cover and cook in medium heat till the beans are cooked tender. Don't over cook the beans. It tastes better when it is almost tender with a little crispiness.

Turn off the heat. Garnish it with grated coconut and freshly chopped Coriander leaves (optional)

Serving Suggestions: Beans Palya can be eaten alongside chapathi's, Akki Rotti and like wise.
Can be a used as an accompaniment with Rice and Sambhar.

Note: Adding chopped carrots along with beans is a good variation to this palya. Also, cooked dal can be added to this beans to enhance its flavor.


See, its that easy. It takes not more than 15 mins to make this one.
