    These are really tasty, and easy to prepare as well! It's a great way to dress-up plain green beans for a moderate number of calories. - 2/16/17

    Delicious! I didnt have ajwin seeds but tried coriander seeds which I crushed up. I also add a few cloves of minced fresh garlic. I also sauteed the chilis garlic and spices in the oil prior to adding the green beans and stock. Instead of water I used a can of vegetable stock. My family loved it! - 9/12/08
