Masala Potatoes & Green Beans Ingredients
Masala potatoes with Green beans is such a simple yet very flavorful dish. If you are fan of Potatoes and Green beans like me then you will surely adore this recipe. A few simple ingredients and you are all set for this delicious recipe.
- Mini Potatoes- I love using new potatoes for this recipe. New mini potatoes give that natural sweetness to compliment the Indian spices.
- Green Beans- I have used fresh green beans but frozen or precooked beans are perfectly fine as well.
- Ginger-Garlic paste- I like using Ginger-Garlic paste because it creates a spice paste to cover the veggies as well. You can make Ginger-garlic paste from fresh ginger and garlic or purchase it from a regular grocery store.
- Curry leaves- Curry leaves gives this recipe a beautiful aroma. It is completely up to you whether to use them or substitute them with other herbs. You do you! I think cilantro, parsley, green garlic, sage or basil would work just fine.
- Red Kashmiri Chili powder- Kashmiri Chili powder is easily available at any Indian grocery store. I have tried different Paprika to substitute for red chili powder and I find Hungarian Smoked or Sweet Paprika to be the best substitute for Kashmiri chili powder for a non-spicy version. So, If you find that chili powder isn’t for you then try using red Smoked or Sweet paprika. It works wonders as well. Although, I prefer Kashmiri chili powder over any other substitution for an authentic taste.
- Turmeric powder
- Cumin-Coriander powder
- Cumin seeds
- Mustard seeds
- Crushed Green Chili
- Lemon Juice
