    Prepare the beans

    Remove the extra stems and strings from the beans with the help of a knife. After doing so, wash the beans properly, as there will be a lot of dirt on them. If you wash them one by one, it will take you plenty of time, so place them in a small plate and pour cold water over them. Toss them up a few times and drain the water. Repeat the same process a few times until you feel that the beans are clean.
