These beans were very good. My husband, 8 year old son and I really loved these. My 2 year old son ate them, but it took him a while. My 6 year old daughter didn't like them, but she doesn't like any green veggies. I will make this again soon. Thank you Ranikabani & Q. Made for 2013 Zaar Cookbook Tag.

I thought these beans were very good. The amount of heat was just right for me. I followed the example in Ms Bold's photograph, and just broke the beans into short lengths, rather than chopping them finely. I thought that breaking the beans would be easier (okay, I am lazy), and also thought the texture might be more pleasant to me. While I was eating the beans - after it was too late to do anything about it - I realized that the addition of a chopped, peeled tomato would probably be very good, also. Thank you very much for another lovely recipe.

I made these delicious beans as part of an 11-dish Indian banquet. They are so easy to prepare, and everyone loved them. Definite keeper that I will now include in all my banquets. The only change I made was to double the amount of mustard seeds because I love the flavour. Thanks for posting.

I used regular green chilies and doubled the mustard seeds. The result was delicious. This a real keeper, a great green side dish for any curry.

It may have been the type of chilies that I on hand (just jalapeƱos), but these beans were not really spicy for us. I didn't have black mustard seeds and instead used regular ones. The blend of flavors of the onions and the mustard seeds did really compliment the beans.
