Beans Carrot Curry Recipe and Beans Carrot Stir Fry Recipes – Beans and carrots are regularly used at home not only for making pulao, biryani, upma, fried rice but also to make quick side dishes like these. Sharing 2 recipes – one to make a curry and the other one a quick stir fry. Both the recipes are simple, healthy and taste good. They go well with rice or any kind of roti/chapathi.

Recipe 1 – I usually pack this for the lunch box with jeera rice, pudina rice, coconut rice, lemon rice or lemon pudina rice You can also use potatoes, beetroot or cauliflower to make this stir fry. An addition of very little good garam masala and kasuri methi is all that is needed to make this flavorful. If you have this vepudu karam, you can use it instead of garam masala.

how to Make Carrot Beans Stir Fry

1. Let ½ tsp cumin ¼ mustard splutter in hot oil. Add 1 tsp chopped garlic and saute for a minute.

2. Add ½ cup finely chopped carrots and ¼ to ½ cup french beans. If using other veggies, you can also add them now. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes on a medium flame until the raw smell of the beans goes off.

addition of veggies

3. Lower the flame, cook covered until the veggies turn tender and cooked. If needed sprinkle little water, if the veggies don’t get cooked well.

4. Sprinkle 2 generous pinches of garam masala, little chili powder and one to 2 generous pinches of kasuri methi (dried methi leaves). Also add salt now. Mix well and stir fry for one to 2 minutes. You will begin to smell everything good. Switch off. You can also use this vepudu karam instead of garam masala and kasuri methi.
