250gmsFrench beansI used frozen beans, you could use fresh ones too
1tspred chilli powder
Salt to taste
Using frozen french beans – Wash the french beans in water water. De-string the beans where possible and cut into small pieces. If you are using fresh beans, wash and de-string. Then cut into small pieces.
Lightly crush the gaelic pods, you could do it in a pestle and mortar. Crushing the garlic helps release the garlicky flavours.
Heat oil in a thick-bottomed pan, when oil is hot toss in the crushed garlic (alongwith the garlic skins).
Once the garlic pods start going brown and you get that divine roasted garlic fragrance, lower the heat and add turmeric and the red chilli powder. Roast briefly while ensuring the chilli powder doesnt burn.
Now add in the beans and salt to taste and stir everything nicely.
Cover with a lid and stir from time to time until the beans have cooked.
