Farasbi batata bhaji recipe - french beans sabzi recipe - how to make french beans potato bhaji

French beans potato bhaji recipe - A simple bhaji with french beans and potato is  a side dish which perfectly goes well  with rice and curry, rotis and chapatis. Needless to say that it is healthy and full of nutrition.  I use beans frequently in dals, curries, sabzis and stir fries. This is an easiest and simplest bhaji with lesser ingredients that you can make quickly without much of an effort.
