15 minute French Green Bean and Corn Stir fry

This is a great side dish with any protein - fish, chicken or meat. I use Panch Phoran, or the Indian 5 Spice mix, which by the way is a must have for your pantry. This mix of 5 seeds - Cumin, Nigella, Fennel, Fenugreek and Black Mustard is such a phenomenal combination of flavors and makes any dish spectacular. These are also used as pickling spices in India.

And you can play around with different combinations of vegetables as well. I have used it with beets, spinach and corn, Kale, sweet potato and green beans, potatoes and mixed greens, and the list goes on.

I use a fresh Indian green chili to add heat, but without that you still have a delightfully flavorful dish minus the heat.

In the photo I have served the dish with my Tandoori style Salmon which is delicious. You can find the recipe here.
