Alsande Bhaji ( Runner Bean Vegetable)

Ok, so this recipe might seem too good to be true. It has very few ingredients and cooks in five minutes flat! However, if you have a heavy curry and rice in the afternoon, you will love this effortless side dish. I like to over cook the beans and get them a little brown. Not Black, that would be burnt. But brown and yummy! It is a personal preference though. I ahve also served this as a hot salad at times I have people over.
Give this one a try. I`m sure you will enjoy it :)
