  1. I almost never comment, however i did some searching and wound up here
    Aloo (Potatoes) and Green Beans Subzi Recipe Video by Show Me The Curry,
    indian recipe, cooking videos, recipe videos. And I do have a few questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some of the remarks look as if they are
    written by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you
    are posting at additional places, I would like to follow everything
    new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  2. Is there a way to make a gravy for this? I love this recipe but id like to be able to make it as a main dish with rice and roti how would I make this same recipe but with a gravy

  3. I love the ninja blender, You can make so a lot of diverse factors with it, and it’s genuinely easy to clean lead to you just get the blade out then set it in the dishwasher. I genuinely appreciate the containers it comes with result in you can do far more like single servings of smoothies, or you can make dip. If your receiving this for juicing, I’m not confident how properly it will work for that simply because it will make much more like a smoothie, not a quite liquidy juice. In any case, I think it is a very good option for creating healthy foods.

  4. Thank you for this fantastic & yet simle dish.I hope you will do more of its kind with different vegatables.

  5. My mum often makes this, I do something similar with frozen peas (nothing seasonal about that either 😉 ). French beans tend to be more abundant here in the summer, so I’ll give it a go.
