Beans Stir Fry

I am happy..I wanted to witness snow fall...I saw snow fall... I wanted to ogle at snow coved roofs....I ogled at the snow covered roofs....I wanted to take pictures of snow falling on my open arms ... I took pictures....I wanted the snow stuck on the road to melt away....rain poured and washed all the snow away....
I am happy...

One of my childhood fantasies about snow has finally closed its curtain. It is time to move on to my next wish list, yes I really do want to see a shooting star someday.... Sometimes I stare at the sky to try my luck, but ends up calling some weird moving stars as alien ship, creates a whole new story around it in my head (a tiny side effect of watching X-files back to back) and retreats.

I think someday while standing on a street, I will have an instinct to look at the sky...but oh no there is a twist.... my silky looong hair (totally bollywood) is blocking my eyes...wind is blowing strongly unsympathetically at me... but the determined me...against all odds...slowly pulls back silky long hair and witness the wonder......Blink !!! Blink !!! Blink !!!

So what is the connection  with all this and beans stir fry ?

Absolutely no connection...I just love to blabber silly and completely nonsense stuffs...I read somewhere that genius minds think like this and suddenly make all the connections... and yells E.u.r.e.k.a !!!!

Let me move on to this simple yet delicious dish, that taste absolutely  great with rice and some yoghurt....

Recipe :
  1. Beans                -  2 cups ,washed, trim the ends and then cut into small (like pic above) 
  2. Garlic                -   3 pods crushed and chopped finely
  3. Onions               -  1/2 large , diced finely
  4. Chillies               -  2-3, slit lengthwise.
  5. Turmeric powder -  1/4 tsp
  6. Mastard seeds     -  a pinch
  7. Cumin seeds       -  a pinch
  8. Oil 
  9. Salt

  1. Heat some oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds and cumin seeds.
  2. When spluttering is over add garlic.
  3. When the aroma of garlic is released, add onions and green chillies.
  4. Saute till onions go slightly transparent.
  5. Add turmeric powder and saute till the raw smell of turmeric goes.
  6. Add the beans with little salt.
  7. Lower the heat, cover the pan and let the beans cook, sauteing it now and then.
  8. Take off from heat once the beans are cooked to your preference.
  9. Check for salt and adjust.

I like to cook till the beans are completely soft and the onions resembles a dark brownish color.

Do you think looking at the above picture, these beans have gone to heaven...? 
It is in the middle of nowhere...
