Pan Roasted Lemon Garlic Green Beans

Crisp, Light, garlicky Green beans with a hint of lemon zest and drizzled with lemon Juice. Delicious, nice crunch from the fried beans, bit of bite from the chilli flakes, zing of lemon zest and that tangy lemon Juice!



  • 250 Grams Green Beans Washed and trimmed
  • 3 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 1/4 Teaspoon red chilli flakes
  •  Juice of Half lemon
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 1/3 Vegetable oil for frying Green Beans
  • Salt to taste


1. Wash Green Beans and trim the edges. Cut them lengthwise into half
2. In a pot bring plenty of water to boil. When the water starts boiling, add green beans and cook for 40 seconds. Immediately remove from the boiling water and add the green beans to a bowl filled with ice and chilled water. This will stop further cooking of the beans.
3. Drain water and pat dry the beans with kitchen towel
4. In a frying pan(shallow) , heat vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add green beans in batches of 10 and fry until the skin starts to wrinkle. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towel
5. Fry the remaining beans in batches and set aside
6. In a separate pan / wok, add olive oil. When the oil is hot, add garlic and fry until garlic turns light golden
7. Add chilli flakes, lemon zest and stir
8. Add Green Beans and give it a nice stir. Squeeze lemon juice over the green beans. Season with a pinch of salt and stir in
9. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until the beans are crispier and cooked through
10. Serve hot immediately
