Indian Green Beans - mild spicy !

Hmmm....I really do not mind this vegetarian dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Another recipe that I've picked up from A's mom - we (me and YJ) call it by the name, Indian Green Beans. Hahahaha....that's another dish without a formal name. And the ingredients are almost similar to Indian Spicy Chickpeas.

Indian Green Beans
Ingredients: green bean sliced, 4-5 shallots sliced, 2-3 garlic minced, 1-2tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp turmeric, butter, salt, 1tbsp oil, freshly ground black pepper, sprinkle of red chili pepper flakes

Directions: Add butter and 1tbsp oil to a frying pan, add in minced garlic, shallots saute till fragrant. Add in green beans and saute till green beans and onions are slightly tender/onions caramelized. Add the spices. Salt to taste. Cook for about 10 mins in low-heat pan (note: if too dry, add some water). Add in some freshly ground black pepper and red chili pepper flakes, mix well.

Makes a really different dish as Vegetarian Thanksgiving Recipes. Imagine having traditional turkeys with these. Does it not bring a new revived flavor to year-end traditional holiday feasting ?
