    Brian Holley's Note:

    The sliced beans and potatoes braised in a spice mix make a wonderful side dish to accompany a meat curry. Here is a simple to prepare recipe well worth 5 stars. Although the recipe calls for French beans, I have used runners. Still good.

      Absolutely yummy. Cooking beans for my family has always been a challenge, but this recipe is a winner. Thanks!

      Easy and tasty recipe. The only thing that I did differently was to add more chilies and I had a can of french style green beans that I needed to use up, so after the potatoes were tender, I just stirred that into the curry. Excellent!

      I have tried to rate this recipe twice now- maybe the 3rd time is a charm. BrianH- boy do you feed us well. This recipe is rather serendipitous- not only does it share my screen name, but I have been looking for a green bean bhaji recipe. I am NOT joking- it's as though you spied on my Google searches this week! :) I didn't use potato, but kept the rest as-is, using a bit more beans. This is completely delicious. 200% fool-proof delicious. Try it- I promise you'll love it!
