Kadai gobi and beans recipe - How to make kadai gobi and beans

gobi-beans subzi
Kadai gobi and beans recipe - Kadai gobi and beans is a quick and easy to prepare sabzi that can be made within ten minutes. Kadai gobi and beans is nothing but a sabzi with spicy flavor and a fiery taste. I make kadai sabzis quite often with almost all vegetables. Chapati and rice is our staple food, so, I need side dishes for both everyday.

On vegetarian days,  sometimes, without thinking much, I go for kadai sabzis which goes well with both roti or chapati and rice with curry. We enjoyed it with rice and kasuri methi dal, and chapati along with papad and mango pickle. If  I make stir fry it is going to be very simple and miss those flavor and taste. But this kadai variety of sabzis are quite interesting and delicious.
