Carrot & French beans sabzi

Carrot-French beans Sabzi cooked in a clay pot, without oil, onion and garlic.

Carrot and French beans make for a wonderful combination when it comes to making simple sabzi. Here I have prepared the sabzi in an earthen pot. The sabzi is cooked without oil, onion, garlic and with minimal spices.  This method of preparation brings out  real taste of the vegetables, which otherwise gets overshadowed by the spices.

This sabzi goes  well with rotis or even as a side dish with rice and curry. I have paired this sabzi with  beetroot rotis which also is an excellent combination. So, here goes the recipe for Carrot & French beans sabzi
