Cherry Bombe's Same Ki Bhaji

July 18, 2013

All this week, the ladies from Cherry Bombe will be serving as guest editors on Food52: sharing recipes from their first issue, answering our questions, and co-hosting a Twitter chat on Thursday.

This is another of Jeanne D'Souza's recipes. It's a great time of year to make this, with green beans in season right now. It's simple to make and is a great way to make the basic green bean seem way more interesting.

This is awesome. This is the basic recipe for "poriyal" in TamilNadu,India for most green vegetables and greens. I use a tablespoon of cut shallots or onions and garlic.

What would be a good substitute for black mustard seeds?<br />

You can skip the mustard seeds, but you can buy them in any near by Indian grocery shop.

Thanks! I knew I had seen them somewhere! I will skip them for tonight.
