Ingredients

1/4 cup clarified butter or vegetable oil

3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

2 small green peppers such as jalapeno or serrano, stems and seeds removed, minced

2 teaspoons turmeric powder

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/8 teaspoon cayenne

1 pound green beans, tough ends removed

1/4 cup water

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

3 tablespoons sesame seeds

1/4 cup clarified butter or vegetable oil

3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. In a large saute pan, heat the butter or oil over medium-high heat.
