  1. I need to double or triple (6 cups green beans) the recipe. Just need to know if I keep the spice ratio the same and up each of the ingredients or which spice should I not increase. Dinner guests are coming and I’ve not tried this before – but diving right in. Thx!

  2. I just started living by myself with zero experience in cooking, this recipe has been my life saver!! Perfect each time

    • Hey Kiran, the potatoes need to be slightly fried before adding the beans till they start browning on the edges. Then you can cook potatoes & beans together covered with a lid for 10-15 minutes till they are soft. This is a stir fried vegetable dish, so you wouldn’t need to add any water.
