Crispy Stir fried Green Beans

Asian-style crispy stir fried green beans is loaded with flavours. Green beans are stir fried until they are crunchy, crispy and have a nice char on the skin. These are better than battered and deep fried green beans. I make this preparation of green beans for get-togethers or parties when we have vegetarian guests as well.


  • 500 Grams Green Beans ( cut into 1 inch long pieces)
  • 2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Red Chilli powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder
  • Salt to taste

For the tempering ( optional)

  • 1/2 Teaspoon Mustard Seeds
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Urad dal
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Channa dal
  • 1 Dry red chilli


1. Wash Green beans and cut them into 1 inch long pieces
2. Add the green beans in a microwave safe bowl
3. Add red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt to the green beans and toss them together


4. Microwave on high for 4 minutes
5. In a pan, heat olive oil. Keep the flame on Medium. When the oil is hot, add the ingredients listed under tempering one after another. And fry until mustard seeds splutter and urad dal and channa dal golden
6. Then add broken dry red chilli  to the oil and immediately add the par boiled green beans
7. Turn the flame to low and leave the green beans in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes and let the green beans get stir fried on its own. Stir intermittently


8. Serve as a side with rice and curry
