French Beans Curry


Being myself more into meaty recipes, always tends to stir in me to do the best with the vegetarian dishes. One such dish is the French Beans curry - an awesome side dish with Rotis and Paranthas.  Simple, healthy and flavorful dish to eat. The hot green chillies gives this dish an extra burst of heat. It can be reduced or increased as you wish to. Recipe of this dish can be used with vegetable of your choice - I use this one with Cluster beans and Cabbage too. 

French Beans


Ingredients

1/4 kg Cobra French beans
1 Onion
1 Tomato
3 Green chillies
1/2 cup grated Coconut powder
1/4 Cumin seeds
5 Garlic pods
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
Salt to taste

Directions

Cut the French beans into small pieces. Boil the French beans. Drain the water through a colander and keep it aside. Meanwhile, grind onion tomato and green chillies separately. 

Take a pan and heat up oil in it. Add cumin seeds to it. Let it splutter and then add finely chopped garlic to it. Add onion paste to the pan and saute it for 2 minutes until it turns translucent. Then add green chilly paste and pureed tomato to the mixture. Let it simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Add salt, turmeric and coriander powder to it. Later add the boiled beans to the mixture and let it cook for 2 minutes. then add the coconut powder to the beans and again let the coconut flavor infuse into the beans mixture. Cook it for 2 minutes and its ready to be served!!
