Here is a very simple yet delicious way to cook green beans. This dish goes well both with Indian meals and with grilled and roasted meats (I like it with sausages). Gujaratis often cook green vegetables with a little bicarbonate of soda in order to preserve their bright colour. I am told that this kills the vitamins. So I blanch the beans and rinse them out quickly under cold running water instead. This works equally well. I generally do the blanching and rinsing quite a bit ahead of time
