Aloo beans sabzi are an Indian vegetable side-dish consisting of stir-fried green beans, potatoes, and flavourful spices like turmeric, chillies, and masala. Aloo means potatoes in Hindi, and sabzi means vegetable dish: simple names that make for a tasty and easy recipe! Let's take a closer look.
To make aloo beans sabzi, we used baby potatoes and French beans (AKA green beans). You can have this dish on its own, or as a dry curry paired with rice or chapati.
In the traditional recipe, potatoes are cut in big chunks and cooked together with the other ingredients. If you want your potatoes to have a crunchy finish, then you'll like our approach below. We have cut the potatoes into coins and griddled them on their own before adding in the french beans.
Aloo beans keep well in the fridge, and they're easy to reheat in a skillet, so feel free to cook a big batch!
