Sem Aur Tomato Sabji/Bhaji

Mamta Gupta

This is a simple, easy but tasty way to cook fresh green beans. Serve with Plain Parathas or as part of an Indian meal. It is a mild dish and suitable for children.

Serves 2-4


  • 250 gm. green beans of any type

  • 1 average sized onion

  • 1 medium sized tomato

  • 2 tsp. cooking oil of choice

  • 1/2 tsp. black mustard seeds

  • 8-10 curry leaves (not bay leaves)

  • 1 level tsp. coriander powder

  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder (you can use grated root of fresh turmeric instead)

  • Salt to taste


  1. Top and tail and then slice beans into 2-3 inch long pieces.

  2. Peel and slice the onion thinly.

  3. Slice the tomato thinly.

  4. Heat oil in a wok/karahi and add mustard seeds. Cover for a few seconds while the splutter, otherwise they will jump all over your stove.

  5. Add curry leaves, stir and then add sliced onions.

  6. Stir fry on medium until onions are softened, not browned.

  7. Add beans, tomatoes, turmeric, ground coriander and salt. You can add chillies to taste here, I don’t. Stir them in.

  8. Cook covered on low medium heat for 10minutes or so. They should not become soggy, slight crunch is tasty.

  9. Serve with Plain Parathas
