Green Bean Fries || Chaitime

Now who doesn’t like French Fries?? I know they’re unhealthy and greasy …but who doesn’t like them!! The taste of a perfectly-sized crispy fry dipped in slightly spiced tomato ketchup is one of the simple pleasures of life. I recently discovered one more to add to these pleasures. Green Bean Fries!

Simple to make and real tasty, green bean fries are tasty alternatives to potato fries, only healthier and beanier! 😉

Green Bean Fries

Green Bean Fries

Ingredients

Fresh green beans, washed and trimmed

Bowl 1:

All-purpose flour (Maida) – 1 cup

Chili Powder – 1 tsp

Garlic Powder – 1 tsp

Onion Powder – 1 tsp

Bowl 2:

Cream (or Milk) – ½ cup

Egg – 1

Salt – to taste

On a plate:

Bread crumbs – 2 cups

For frying:

Oil

Directions

  • Heat oil in a deep kadai or fryer on medium flame. Keep an eye on it to make sure that the oil doesn’t overheat.
  • Combine together flour, chili powder, garlic powder and onion powder in a bowl. Toss green beans in the flour mixture to coat them completely and shake off excess.
  • In a different bowl, whisk together egg and cream. Add salt to it.
  • Dip the flour-coated beans into the egg mixture and roll them in bread crumbs, coating completely.
  • Fry these beans in batches, till they are golden brown, for about two-three minutes. Drain on paper towels.
  • Here’s a tip – to make these fries crispy (just like at restaurants) fry them twice. Fry them once, drain excess oil, fry them again!
  • Enjoy!
