1lbs fresh or frozen green beans or two cans drained
4 Tbs dessicated unsweetened coconut (available at Indian Grocers)
1/2 tsp of turmeric
1/2 tsp of red chili powder (or to taste)
1 onion diced or sliced
1 red bell pepper or 2-3 mild red chilies
1 inch stick of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of mustard seed
1/2 tsp of cumin seed
salt (to taste)
Step 1:In a large skillet, heat 1Tbs of canola oil on medium-high heat. Add the cumin seeds, mustard seeds and cinnamon stick, onions curry leaves, chilies. Fry 3-4 minutes.
Next add the green beans and some salt to taste. If you are using fresh or frozen you will need to saute this for about 10-12 minutes (or until beans are to your desired texture). The frozen variety will thaw and give off a little water so you can "steam/fry" the beans. If they are fresh and dry add a little bit of water ( about 1Tbs) to make sure they beans don't get browned. If you are using canned beans just cook for 2-3 minutes.
Next add the coconut, chili powder, turmeric. Fry for another 3-4 minutes. Taste for seasoning and finish the dish. Enjoy.
