Dear Chef,

This receipe of yours is totally different and goes with the name you provided. However, the nutrients of the dish will be gone if the green colour of the beans changes. This is my opinion. So I do not add water but just sprinkle some water and close the lid for 10 min with just salt and turmeric added. And later i add all other spices avoiding onion and GG paste. The result is we get a satisfaction of eating the dish fully done and at the same time GREEN!!.
Just thought of posting my idea of cooking the same vegetable kind.
