French cut green beans

This recipe is very simple, hardly 5-6 ingredients and easy to make. Serve it as a side-dish with lentils and rice/ bread.


1 frozen pack of French-cut green beans
1 teaspoon salt
1 largo potato, peeled, diced
1/2 jalapeno, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
1 tablespoon curry powder
2 tablespoons oil


Place potatoes in a small bowl and fill it with 1 cup water, just so that potatoes have submerged in the water. Heat this in the microwave for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a 3 qt sauce pan, heat oil over medium heat.
Add jalapenos, beans and salt and mix well. Cook covered for 10 minutes over medium-low heat. Stirring every couple of minutes.
Then add curry powder and mix again, cook for another 5 minutes or so.
Add cooked potatoes (they should have cooked by now) but drain all the water before adding potatoes. Stir gently, if the potatoes are not fully cooked, then you will need to cook them now for 5 minutes. Serve hot.
