To make french beans egg recipe , you just need 3 main ingredients , Indian tempering ingredients ( optional) and some basic spices.
French Beans - I always prefer to use fresh green beans in this recipe. French beans that are tender ,green in colour and works well . But you can also use the other variety which is light green in colour and slightly flat ,border in shape.
Dill leaves - Strong flavour of dill leaves along with beans and egg curry goes on really well. Don't be skeptical about trying this because this adds so much of taste in this anda bhurji recipe.
Other Produce - Onions , Green Chillies and Coriander Leaves are other produce which are used in this recipe.
Eggs - Eggs are main ingredient of this recipe . If you want to replace egg then substitute with paneer ( Indian Cottage cheese) . If using paneer always use a firmer paneer , crumble with hands and then use in this recipe.
Vegetable Oil - any flavourless cooking oil works well here. I have used vegetable oil here.
Others - I use chana dal ( split chickpea lentil ) in this recipe , as it gives a crunch in between while eating but it is truly optional. Red chilli powder and salt are the only spices used here.
For actual measurement of ingredients instructions notes , follow the recipe cartd.
If you are a vegan , then try out firm tofu instead of egg in this recipe. Crumble tofu and use accordingly to make a vegan version of this recipe.
