Sheem Paturi (Flat Beans Curry - Bengali Fusion Style)


          Paturi is a traditional Bengali recipe where the fish is coated in mustard paste and is steamed. It is generally cooked, wrapped in a banana leaf. But today I would like to share my version of a paturi style recipe with flat beans. 

          It is a very simple, easy and equally delicious dish. As banana leaf was not available, I cooked the beans, mixed with all the mentioned ingredients in a  dum style. This side dish can be had with plain steamed rice or chapattis. Please check for an easy step by step method with pictures to prepare it.





  • 400 gms. flat beans, chopped
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 green chilies, chopped
  • 1 tsp. garlic, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. fresh grated coconut
  • 2-3 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. red chili powder
  • 1 tsp. nigella seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1-2 tsp. mustard oil





          In n bowl, mix together all the above mentioned ingredients. Transfer it to a kadai / pan. Cover and cook on a low flame till done. Sprinkle water at intervals if needed. 

          When the veggie turns soft, switch off the flame. Your curry is done. It is that simple and easy.  Relish as a side dish with either plain steamed rice or chapattis.
