This is an easy dish to make in an airfryer. Any type of green beans can be used, like French Beans or Runner Beans or any other type you can find. Sometimes, add a spoon or two of a pickle spice left over at the bottom of a pickle jar. This spices up your vegetable bhajies. If adding pickle, reduce quantity of salt added to the dish.

Adding tomatoes and onions is optional, I make it both with and without these. To me, vegetables taste better without them.

Serves 2


  • 200 gm. green beans of any type

  • 4-5 small new potatoes, washed well

  • 1 tbsp. cooking oil (mustard oil tastes better, if you can find it)

  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds (change flavour by trying with mustard seeds or Panch Pooran

  • 1/4 inch piece ginger, peeled and finely shredded (optional)

  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped (optional)

  • 1/4 of a small lemon (adjust to taste)

  • 1 tsp. coriander powder

  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder

  • 1/4 tsp. chilli powder (adjust to taste)

  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt (adjust to taste)


  1. Top, tail and slice beans thinly.

  2. Wash potatoes, cut into halves (no need to peel new potatoes). If they are really small, leave them whole.

  3. Place both the vegetables in a bowl and add all spices listed, salt and oil.

  4. Mix well.

  5. Place in your air-frier and cook for 4 minutes.

  6. Take basket out, stir vegetables and cook again for 2-3 minutes, until vegetables look and feel cooked.

  7. Adjust seasoning, takes out in a serving bowl.

  8. Serve with any Indian meal.
