A typical South Indian way of preparing French beans, perked up with soaked chana dal and flavoured with a traditional tempering. The chana dal helps provide crunch and volume to the stir-fry, as a low glycemic index alternative to other supplementary ingredients like coconut. While most vegetables can be prepared this way, the French Beans and Chana Dal Stir-Fry is especially beneficial for diabetics as the fibre present in French beans binds the glucose and slows down its absorption thereby preventing a quick rise in blood sugar levels.
