Green Beans Curry

This curry is really easy if you use frozen Green Beans. In taste and quality it is very similar to using the fresh variety. Nutrition experts vouch for the quality of frozen produce, as the vegetables once harvested, are quickly processed for freezing, destroying bacteria.

The fresh produce on the other hand goes to warehouses and distribution centers, and sometimes transported long distances before it gets to you. If you can buy local produce you have an advantage over the freshness compared to what is available in the supermarkets.

When cooking it is a good idea to use a medium to low temperature with the lid on at the early stages. When the beans looks soft, remove the lid and allow the excess water to dry. The images show some of the ingredients that are used and the dish, when it is cooked and ready to be served. This dish may be made within half an hour, including preparation time.
