Mushroom and Green Bean Bhaji

This a lovely side dish that goes with any curry, especially my Chittinad Chicken Curry or grilled chicken or fish, even a nice steak.
Perfect for vegetarians as a main dish too. Syn free on extra easy and full of super free, Great for an SP day too.


1 onion
3 garlic cloves
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
salt to taste
1 tbsp tomato puree
8oz mushrooms quartered
8oz green beans chopped into 3


Blitz the onion and garlic until smooth, mix together all the spices.
In a large pan sprayed with frylight, fry the onion mixture for 2 minutes over a low heat so as not to burn, then mix in the spices, salt and tomato puree. Have a cup of water ready. Add a tbsp of water to the mixture and keep stirring so the spices don't stick to the pan, keep doing this for about 5 minutes, you should end up with a sauce. Add the mushrooms and green beans, simmer until they are cooked through about 10 minutes, keep adding water if needed and stirring occasionally.
