This was the first time that I've tried the garam masala and I enjoyed it very much. I made this for Zaar World Tour 8 for the Bistro Babes team

A simple, easy dish that makes a lovely side dish, especially for your Indian meal. I steamed my green beans in the microwave, then proceeded as per the recipe. I used a nice summer tomato from the garden, which I think makes a big difference. Made for ZWT 8.
