This recipe is from my notebook. The title says "Alu bean bhaja - Orissa (SK)". You know what that means? This must be from one of Chef Sanjeev Kapoor shows! :-)

1 lb or 1/2 kg green beans/farsabi/fansi/shravan ghevda, chopped
1 medium potato, peeled, diced

2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
2 green chilies, slit
pinch of asafoetida
1/4 tsp turmeric powder

1. Heat oil. Add all the ingredients for tempering.
2. Add potatoes and green beans. Add 2 tbsp water.
3. Cover with a lid. Cook till potatoes are cooked but not mushy.
4. Add salt to taste.
5. Serve.
I used 1 lb french cut green beans from the frozen vegetable section.
