Salt
1 lb green beans, trimmed and cut into 1in length
3 Tbsp olive or canola oil
1/2 tsp whole cumin seeds
1/2 tsp whole brown or yellow mustard seeds
1/2 tsp sesame seeds

Bring 8 cups water to a boil. Add 1 Tbsp salt to it and then the cut beans. Boil for 4-5 min or until the beans are just tender. Drain immediately and leave in colander. Pour the oil into a frying pan over medium high. When hot drop in the cumin, mustard, and sesame seeds. A few seconds later take the pan off the heat and stir in the beans. Put the pan back on the stove at Medium Low heat. Stir to mix for a minute, adding 1/2 tsp salt and the cayenne. Remove pan from heat.
