Aloo Beans Sabzi
Punjabi Aloo Green Beans Sabzi recipe with step by step pictures. Like my other Punjabi Recipes this sabzi recipe is also from my neighbor Aunt. Whenever, I make sweets or snack or baked goodies I share with my 2 Indian neighbor families. And in-return they fill my box with a yummy food. Long back auntie returned my box with full of aloo beans sabzi. Sabzi was so good, full of flavors and my kids liked it a lot. I was happy that they ate all of the green beans along with rotis. So, immediately I want to know the recipe and called auntie and noted down the recipe.
This is one of our family's favorite side dish for rotis and I often make this for lunch box along with Phulka. This sabzi is very easy to make except chopping green beans. If you have helping hand like me yes.,V did this job for me. Most of the time he only chop green beans and okra the previous night. So that it will be helpful for me to cook both breakfast and lunch in the morning.

Punjabi Aloo Beans Sabzi
In Auntie's Sabzi the green beans were finely so that it gets cooked faster in the sabzi but I did one small change this time. I steamed the chopped beans and used it in the sabzi. But in the original method, you have to add the fresh chopped green beans and cook till tender. I have done that way too but this time I was in hurry so simultaneously cooked sabzi and steamed green beans. Either way sabzi tastes great and pairs well with Phulka Rotis, Puris and Dosa.
