Thai Curry Glazed Green Beans

18 Dec

Wishing all my dear fellow bloggers and readers in advance a Very Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Years 2016. I know the blogging world is full of baked sweet goods so I wanted to share something different. Sharing one of the recipe I will be having on my dinner table for Christmas. This is a very easy and quick recipe. I made these beans for the first time about 5 weeks back as I had bought more than I needed thai curry paste and pad thai sauce.  Since then, I have made it a couple of times till I got the recipe to my liking. This year I decided to host a Christmas Lunch and as most of my friends are vegetarians my husband wanted me to included this dish. My lunch is going to be a mix of different cuisines just like a typical Goan.


I wanted my beans to have a  subtle taste of lemon grass, some spice and the underlying flavor and sourness of fish sauce. You can replace the fish sauce with soy if you do not like it. You can use the glazed green beans to make a Pad Thai inspired rice noodles, Vietnamese fresh spring rolls – which does not need a dipping sauce, or enjoy with plain rice.


Serving Size: 6-8


1.5 lbs of tender green beans

Trio of bell-peppers julienne (1 each – red,  yellow, orange)

1 medium onion julienne

1.5-2tbsp thai red/green curry paste

1 tbsp of fish sauce/ soy sauce

4-5 tbsp of pad thai sauce

1/3 crushed unsalted roasted peanuts



Cut the green beans into halves and microwave in a glass bowl as per instructions to cook them tender about 6-8 minutes. Drain and keep aside.

In a hot wok add the onions till it becomes translucent.

Next add and saute the bell-peppers for couple of minutes.

Add the thai curry paste and saute for 1-2 minutes till it is fragrant.

Next add the green beans, pad thai sauce, fish/soy sauce and saute till all mixes well and the beans are coated.

Garnish with crushed roasted peanuts and serve with rice, noodles or make some Vietnamese fresh spring rolls.



1 cup of cubed tofu

1/3 cup small dried roasted shrimps

1 cup of cooked chicken

    This looks very good. Sometimes I search to find healthy vegetarian meals and wonder, how mostly of these dishes include soya. I’m allergic to soya, which is one thing. Another is that almost all soya are produced with GMO like much food. I try my best to avoid GMO and find great organic food in special shops.

    • Nandini December 19, 2015 at 8:05 am #

      Thank You Irene so much. It is hard to find non-gmo foods. I find costco carries quite a few items.

      • IreneDesign2011 December 19, 2015 at 9:22 am #

        Here in Spain I shop in health shops to get non gmo.

  12. Worlds Biggest Fridge Magnet December 18, 2015 at 10:42 pm #

    LOVING this!
    It certainly ties in with my new love of veggies so I am DEFINITELY going to do something along these lines!!!

  20. Loretta December 19, 2015 at 5:20 am #

    I keep looking at lighter veggies and fish dishes around this time Nandini (there’s just too much temptation around right now). Your beans and peppers sound real good in this dish with the Thai flavors. The spring rolls look real good too, a nice addition to your repertoire.

    • Nandini December 19, 2015 at 8:21 am #

      Thank You so much Loretta. This dish makes me feel guilt-free even if I over eat 🙂

  32. sanchitahobby December 27, 2015 at 7:25 pm #

    Simple and easy to cook dish. Can you replace the pad thai sauce with anything indian like ginger garlic paste

    • Nandini December 30, 2015 at 10:52 am #

      Hi Sanchita the closest I think to the pad thai sauce would be a combination of the india tamarind maggie sauce and a the spicy sauce that has a strong hint of ginger and garlic flavor. Just watch for the amount to use to create a balance of taste and flavor according to your liking. hope this helps 🙂

  33. aj vosse December 29, 2015 at 12:12 am #

    Hi Nandini,

    Thank you for dropping by my blog and liking my post on baked kale chips! Your post on Thai Curry glazed green beans look delicious! I was watching a past episode of Food Paradise and they featured the Brick Lane Curry House and your dish looks absolutely divine and top restaurant quality! 🙂


    • Nandini January 11, 2016 at 3:14 pm #

      Thank You Belinda for your kind words. I truly appreciate it much. And Thank You for stopping by as well 🙂

      Thank you so Much 🙂

  40. Maryanne January 9, 2016 at 2:25 pm #

    This is the best one yet! I love that there is no sugar in it! Very healthy and hearty!

    • Nandini January 11, 2016 at 3:18 pm #

      Thank Maryanne so much. I must caution that the store bought pad thai sauce does have sugar.

      • Maryanne January 11, 2016 at 4:14 pm #

        Yes, and the restaurants too I’m sure.

  41. Lynz Real Cooking January 11, 2016 at 3:09 pm #

  43. Loretta January 14, 2016 at 11:01 am #

    Just popped over to your blog Nandini to see if I’ve missed any of your posts, but I don’t think I have, you’ve probably just been busy. Anyway, a Happy New Year to you and your family.

    • Nandini January 15, 2016 at 8:01 pm #

      Thank You Loretta so much for stopping by. I thought I would take a break for 3 weeks during the holidays but ended with shingles the day after Christmas and it has been a slow recovery with very bad pain and eye swelling. Hoping to be running in a week or so. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and Wishing you and your family as well a Very Blessed New Years 2016!

      • Loretta January 16, 2016 at 4:51 am #

        Oh gosh so very sorry to hear that Nandini. I’ve heard shingles is pretty painful. I hope you’re well on the road to recovery and up and running with your blog in no time. Sometimes it is good to take a brief hiatus though, but I also find it is very hard to get back into it when one has been absent for a length of time. Do look after yourself, God Bless.

        • Nandini January 18, 2016 at 1:05 pm #

          Thank You so much Loretta. I am on my way to full recovery but a bit slow. Should be in full swing in another week or 2. It is very painful and makes you sensitive to light which is a bit hard.

  44. literallycourtney January 14, 2016 at 11:38 am #

    This looks so yum! I would like to make Pad Thai soon – it’s really just about purchasing all of those ingredients!

    • Nandini January 15, 2016 at 8:04 pm #

      Thank You Courtney so much. Pad Thai is really a quick recipe. Like you said it is just that you need all the ingredients together.
