 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         fresh green beans
    4      tablespoons   vegetable oil
    1      tablespoon    whole black mustard seeds
    4      cloves        garlic -- peeled and minced
      1/2  -1            hot, dried red chili
                         coarsely crushed in mortar
    1      teaspoon      salt
      1/2  teaspoon      sugar
                         freshly ground black pepper
 
 Trim the beans and cut them into 1-inch lengths.
 Blanch the beans by dropping them into a pot of boiling water and boiling 
 rapidly for 3-4 minutes or until they are just tender.
 Drain immediately in a colander and rinse under cold, running water.
 Set aside.
 
 Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium flame.
 When hot, put in the mustard seeds.
 As soon as the mustard seeds begin to pop, put in the garlic.
 Stir the garlic pieces around until they turn light brown.
 Put in the crushed red chili and stir for a few seconds.
 Put in the green beans, salt, and sugar.
 Stir to mix.
 Turn the heat to medium-low.
 Stir and cook the beans for 7-8 minutes or until they have absorbed the 
 flavor of the spices.
 Add the black pepper, mix, and serve.
 
 Notes: Can prepare the GB’s ahead, then finish 15 min before serving.
