Green Beans with Cumin, Garlic & Tomato

A fresh tasting veggie side dish, not slathered in the usual curry house thick creamy sauce. It only takes a few minutes to prepare and cook and would go well with a number of dishes, indian or otherwise.

3 tbsp ghee or melted butter
2 fat cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
200g fine green beans, stalks removed, halved and blanched for 2 mins
½ tsp turmeric
2 large tomatoes, skinned, seeded and diced
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the ghee or butter in a frying pan and add the garlic and cumin seeds. Stir fry for 1 min then add the beans and stir fry for a further 2 mins. Add the turmeric and tomato and cook until the tomatoes just start to break up. Season to taste and serve immediately.
