Surti Lilva nu Shaak

I discovered a frozen pack of surti lilva in my freezer, which I had bought to make panchkutiyu shaak or undhiyu. I ran out of time for making any of those two, so finally made a simple surti lilva nu shaak.

Fresh Beans Stir Fry
1 1/2 cup frozen fresh surti lilva
4 baby potatoes, quartered
2 roma tomatoes, quartered
1 tsp Gujarati garam masala

1/2" ginger
2 cloves garlic
