Core Spices & Flavorings-
1/2 tsp cumin powder
2 tbs chopped garlic
1 tsp ginger paste
Secondary Spices & Flavorings-
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
pinch of sugar
3 tbs oil
1 small onion finely sliced
5-6 mushroom sliced (I used baby bella)
3-4 ounces of green beans (I used tender french beans or haricot verts)
3 tbs soya sauce
Blanch the beans in boiling water for about 1 1/2-2 minutes and then soak them in cold water.
Heat a wok and pour oil.
Add the chopped garlic and ginger paste.
Stir fry on high heat and the onion.
Continue to stir and add the mushrooms.
Throw in the green beans, cumin powder, sugar and soya sauce and stir fry for 2-3 minutes mixing well.
Add black pepper powder and stir fry for another couple of minutes.
Serve hot with steamed rice or own its own.
Variation: You can also stir fry small pieces of breast chicken instead of or in addition to the mushrooms.
