Aloo Beans Sabzi / Easy Potato & Green Beans Stir-fry Recipe

Aloo Beans Sabji, an easy and simple stir-fry recipe which can prepared in 20 mins. This is a dry preparation which goes very well with plain roti / chapati. You can also serve this with sambar rice or rasam rice.
The main ingredient which creates magic here is Punjabi Garam Masala. This is a north-Indian style sabzi preparation. For south-Indian style version, try adding coriander powder, cumin and pepper powder, which gives totally a different taste. You can sprinkle lemon juice while serving for that extra flavor.
I made this recipe very simple without using onions or tomatoes or ginger-garlic paste. On the whole, you can try any set of ingredients to bring out different flavors with this vegetable combo of potato and green beans. Lets check the recipe,

Soya Beans Dahi Vada / Low Fat Thayir Vadai Recipe


Soya Beans Dahi Vada / Low Fat Thayir Vadai Recipe
Soya Beans Dahi Vada / Low Fat Thayir Vadai Recipe

Soya Beans Thayir Vadai Recipe, a typical south-Indian style curd vadai preparation made healthy by not following deep frying method. Yes, you heard it right :) I didn't deep fry these beauties, just made use of paniyaram pan to do the job with very less amount of oil. Though, it can not compare with the best results which get from the deep fried ones, but still its healthy and health freaks like me can get satisfied. It is not crispy, but when soaked in curd or sambar or rasam, you can't identify the difference, whether it is deep fried or not.
Those who doesn't have paniyaram pan, can try baking or steaming method to prepare medhu vadai. I made use of all the ingredients for garnishing which I had in pantry. Curry leaves, coriander leaves and boondi, are the three ingredients which were not available and had to use carrots and green chilies for garnishing. 
For north-Indian style version, we use green chutney and sweet n sour chutney for garnishing, which I shall later. You can replace cumin powder with chaat masala or sandwich masala powder. Lets check the recipe of Low Calorie Soya Beans Dahi Vadai,
