Coconut Green Beans

I love this simple Indian vegetable dish and its so easy to make

Ingredients:
  • Green beans can also make it with okra
  • 1/4 red onion
  • a handful of frozen coconut (this is great from Indian stores)
  • salt to taste
  • mustard seeds
  • garlic
  • 2 small green chili's
  • cumin seeds a few
  • a little masala powder
  • a few curry leaves (again from Indian store, its not required though)
Method:
  1. cook the green beans and slice, I used a microwave bag yesterday and steamed it very quick to do
  2. heat canola oil and pop mustard seeds with curry leaves and green chili then add onion, garlic, cumin and saute for 5 minutes
  3. after a few minutes add a little salt and masala powder, add green beans and coconut saute for 3 min and its done.
I ate this with kala (black) chana and rice, lovely. Its a great vegetable side dish with any cuisine
Enjoy......

  15. When I was in London weeks ago (seemed like eonsssssssssssss), anyway, I had Curried Okro (Okra) at an Indian Resturant and couldn't shake off the feeling of something ODD as I grew up on Okro cooked in a diametrically opposed manner. Anyhow, someday I may try it in my own kitchen!
