Fried beans chinese style

Combination of sweet and sour with a bit of garlic and smoky flavour of seseme oil . I feel thats the best way of cooking fresh beans.

Serves 2
500 gm of fresh beans
2 cloves of garlic cut finely
1 tsp of honey or brown sugar
1 Tbsp of white vinegar
1 Tbsp of soya sauce
1 Tbsp of chilli garlic sauce
2 Tbsp of seseme oil
Water to boil beans

Boil water and boil beans for 2 minutes .drain water and dip beans in ice cold water as soon as you take the beans out that healps in retaining the colour of beans to green . Peal fibres out from sides and cut them into halves .

Now in another pot take seseme oil make it very hot and put garlic .
As garlic gets light brown  put vinegar , soya sauce , honey , chilli garlic sauce ,salt and toss fried beans into it . For a minute . Off gas and let it stay in pan . As beans are already cooked they just need time for all ingredients to get inside but should not be overcooked or else they would loose their vitamins and texture . Also please note do not close the lid . Else they will loose their colour.
