String the beans, wash and cut it into small pieces as shown in the picture.
Heat oil, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, when it splutters, add onion and saute till onions turn light brown.
Add tomatoes, turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and cook till tomatoes become slightly mushy.
Add chopped broad beans and salt required. Sprinkle water and cook till it becomes soft. (Sprinkle water and stir in between for even cooking and to prevent it from getting burnt.)
Note – You can cook it in a pressure pan also without the weight.
You can add ginger garlic paste, if you prefer, after you saute the onions.
