 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      Lb            Fresh Green Beans
    4      Tbsp          Vegetable Oil
    1      Tbsp          Whole Black Mustard Seeds
    4      Cloves        Garlic -- Peeled And Minced
      1/2                Dried Red Chili (To 1) -- Coarsely Crushed
    1      Tsp           Salt
      1/2  Tsp           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.
 
 Note: Can prepare the GB’s ahead, then finish 15 min before serving.
