Sauteed Green Beans

This is a very different variety of beans with a little chinese flavour on it. Got this recipe from my neighbor who tries lots of new stuffs. She does the whole beans (cut only the corners) but I made into 1-inch size to fit into my hubby's lunchbox.
I found a little different version of this recipe in Youtube.


Beans - 200 gms
Garlic - 3 big pods finely chopped
Ginger - 1 inch finely chopped
Spring Onions - 1/4 cup finely chopped
Hot sauce - 1 tsp
Soy Sauce - 3 tsp
corn starch - 1 tbsp (mix corn powder to water and make a watery paste)
Vinegar - 1 tsp
Sesame seeds - 1 tbsp
Oil - 2 tbsp


1. Cook the beans on microwave for 2 mins (Actual recipe calls to cook the beans on stovetop with little oil on low flame)

2. Take a wide pan add the oil. To this add the chopped ginger, garlic and spring onions and fry them on medium flame.

3. Add the hot and soy sauce and let it cook for 1 min.

4. Add the corn starch, Vinegar and salt to this.

5. Add the cooked beans to the prepared sauce and mix well and keep on low flame. U can turn off after the beans get mixed well with the ingredients and turns crisp and glazed.

6. Dry roast the sesame seeds and add on top of the beans (I skipped this part as my husband don't like sesame seeds).

7. Delicious sauteed beans is ready.
