This is a very simple dish. The hing gives a very different taste to the preparation. I make it often & we like it a lot. I hope you guys like it too. This is only for people who like the hing flavor.

Ing -
250 gms - green string beans - stringed & chopped into 1/2 inch pcs
2 medium sized potatoes - cut into very small cubes
1 onion chopped
1 tsp - jeera
about 1/4 tsp - hing
1/2 tsp - red chilli powder
1/2 tsp - garam masala
1/4 tsp - amchur
salt to taste

Method -
In a kadai, heat some oil & sputter the jeera in it.
Add the onions, the hing (I very conveniently forgot to add the hing in the "hing wale beans alu"- thanks to my anonymous friend (refer comment) I have added it now) & the potatoes & cook till the potatoes are half done.
At this stage add the beans & salt and cover with lid & cook till beans are just about done. Keep stirring in between.
Add the haldi, red chilli, garam masala & amchur - in that order & mix well after each addition.
Serve with rotis or parathas.
