Great recipe, I love beans and always look out for different ways to cook and serve them. We had these beans as a side dish with other indiam style dishes and everyone commented on how nice they were. I'm going to do them tonight as a side dish to go with fresh fish.

Very enjoyable. I did not have cumin seeds, so used cumin powder. Also added 1/2 finely sliced onion, fried with the beans. It was very tasty and a new way with beans for me. Yum & thanks.
