Flat Green Beans / Papdichi Bhaji

Time 30 min
Flat green beans 250 gms (cut into small pieces)
Finely chopped onion 2 medium size
Red chili powder 1.5 tsp & ginger garlic paste 1/4 tsp / Kolhapuri masala 2 tsp
Water 1/2 cup
Coriander 1 tsp for garnishing
Oil 2 tbsp
Salt to taste

Heat oil in pan, add onion, saute till onion turns golden brown. Then add flat green beans. Fry and stir well for about 3-4 min. Then add 1/2 cup water cover with lid and cook for about 10 min till beans are cooked 80 %. Then add red chili powder/ kolhapuri kanda lasun masala, salt fry for about 2-3 min. Keep the low flame. Check the water level if require add 2 tsp water and now let it cook for about 10 min. Keep checking to  avoid burning. Switch off the flame, garnish with coriander and serve hot.

It is dry bhaji / sabji so keep in mind water requirement to avoid overcooking. u need to taste whether it has been cooked or not.

Fresh beans cooks fast and require less water for cooking.
If u cover lid and keep water on lid, bhaji taste good and require less water, because steam is automatically generated inside the pan.
