Guferati (Indian Green Beans)


Hello everybody!

As promised, I have a recipe for the Indian Green Beans that I served with my Indian Butter Chicken

The green beans are spicy and flavorful.  If you’re sensitive to spicy foods, I suggest cutting back on the red chili powder.  However, since guferati is supposed to be hot, I wouldn’t recommend doing so.

Here’s the recipe:

1 lb. green beans, trimmed

2 Tbs. canola oil

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1/2 Tbs. mustard (seed or powder)

1/2 tsp. red chili pepper

1/4 tsp. white sugar

1/4 tsp. ginger



Boil water and add green beans for 4 minutes.  Do not overcook.  Drain them and rinse them with cool water so they stop cooking.  Set aside.

Heat oil and saute garlic until slightly browned, not burned.  Add the green beans, mustard, chili pepper, sugar, ginger, salt, and pepper.  Cook until your desired consistency.  I cooked mine for about 8 minutes so they were softer, but still had a bite to them.


Hope you enjoy!  Let me know what you guys think.

Stay Serendipitous!
