Its a simple recipe that does not call for much time or many ingredients. This is a dry vegetable recipe that does not use water or other liquids.

Two more French Beans recipes which I make at times are:

  1. Beans Foogath
  2. Beans Poriyal

This aloo beans recipe can also be made with Capsicum instead of French Beans. The rest of the ingredients remain the same. You will find the link for the recipe here -> Aloo Capsicum Recipe.

Few tips for making Aloo Beans Recipe

  • For the beans and aloo to cook faster, it is better if you cover the pan or kadai with a lid or plate. To ensure that the veggies don’t get burnt, add some water on the lid of the pan. This is applicable only if you are using an external lid which can hold water. If you are using a pan which has its own lid, then just cover it and let the french beans and potatoes cook on slow fire. Generally, when we make this beans aloo recipe at home, we just let the veggies cook in the kadhai on a slow flame without covering it with the lid. However, If you choose to cover with the lid then the veggies will cook fast but will lose their crispiness.
  • If you add 2-3 tsp of pav bhaji masala to this aloo beans recipe, it tastes great.
  • If you want the aloo beans sabzi to be a little more tangy, then you can add ½ to 1 tsp of more amchur powder.
  • Instead of vegetable oil, you could also use ghee or even olive oil to make this recipe.

You can serve beans aloo ki sabzi hot with rotis and curd. It can also be served as a side dish with dal rice combo.

How to make Beans Aloo or Aloo Beans ki Sabzi

1: Start by cleaning and cutting the french beans and aloo. In a thick bottomed kadai or pan add the oil. When the oil becomes hot, add the aloo. Stir. Reduce the flame and let the aloo slow cook for some time. Keep on stirring in between.

4: If you want the vegetables to cook quickly then you can cover the kadai or wok with a lid. But, remember to check it after a few minutes or so. If you cover the veggies they will loose their crispiness. But works when you are in a hurry. I don’t cover the kadai when cooking this recipe. I just cook it on a slow flame. Takes some time but worth it. When the vegetables are cooked, then add garam masala powder and amchur powder (dry mango powder).

    • Welcome Megha. Glad to know that you check the website for recipes. Feel free to ask any query on recipes posted.

  12. Hi,

    I have a doubt, when i put potatoes in the karahi, they all stick to the vessel. Due to which I am unable to make any vegetable which needs to have potato.
    Couls you please help me with this.

    • use a karahi, which has been seasoned very well. seasoning means it has been used for frying many times. if the kadai is new, then the sticking will happen initially. later when the kadai is being used regularly, there won’t be any sticking. also thin base kadai will have this issue. also make sure that the oil is hot, when you add the potatoes.

  13. I am on local leave and been trying out most of your recipes ( Laddi Pav , Dosa , etc.) My better half and my son enjoy it
