Italian Pole green beans and Potatoes stir fry

Italian Pole green beans ...I have grown to love these beans ,they are quite similar to green beans but have a fuller well rounded flavor. You'll find them in the freezer section of your grocery store .If not you can use regular green beans. I cook then the way my mom cooks green beans .This is a very simple and satisfying dish that even my kids  love .

1/2 lb Italian Pole Green Beans
1 meduim potato sliced
1 small tomato chopped
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander pwdr
1/2 tsp turmeric pwdr
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 tsp pepper pwdr
salt to taste

Directions :
Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan or non-stick pan .Add cumin seeds when they brown ,add the finely chopped garlic cloves .Stir for 30 secs .Add turmeric pwdr,coriander pwdr tomatoes and stir fry for a min .Add the potatoes ,pepper pwdr ,salt and beans (I add them frozen ,no need to thaw these).Stir fry for 5 mins .Cover and cook on a low flame till the potatoes are tender but not mushy around 25 mins .Garnish with coriander leaves, Serve hot with chapatis.
