Today I am going to write a dry curry recipe which is my all time favourite. In my mom’s place everyone like this curry but I never cooked in my in law place this because they don’t it garlic. So I prepared the dish once again in this Orissa trip. So here is how I have prepared:-

Sword Beans or Flat Beans & Potato Curry (In My Own Style)

Preparation time: 15 minutes (Approximately)

Cooking time: 20 minutes (Approximately)

Serves-4 persons


Sword Beans- 250 grams


Onion-2 (Finely chopped or sliced)

Ginger garlic paste-2 tsp

Tomato-1 Medium (Sliced)

Oil-2-3 tabs

Cumin Seeds- ½ tsp

Mustard seeds-1/2 tsp

Salt- to taste

Turmeric Powder-1/2 tsp

Chilli Powder-2 tsp or to taste

Kasuri Methi-2 tsp

Coriander Powder-3 tsp


• Wash and cut beans in 2 inches length.

• Peel and slice potato in ½ inch thickness.

• Heat oil in a pan.

• Add cumin and mustard seeds in that.

• Once mustard and cumin splutter completely then add sliced onion in this.

• Fry onion till it turns o golden brown colour.

• Now add ginger garlic paste along with all dry masala except kasuri methi and salt.

• Once masala starts leaving oil then add potato and beans and fry for couple of minutes.

• Add salt in this and mix well.

• Cover it with lid and cook in low heat till vegetables are cooked completely.

• Now add tomato and kasuri methi .

• Fry in medium heat for five minutes.

• Serve hot with anything you like. I love to have this with hot rice, ghee and dal.
