Fried green beans


1 pack green beans, fresh (mine is from Whole Foods), trim the ends of the beans and finely chopped them
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
10 curry leaves, each torn in half
2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 jalapeno, finely chopped
1 tablespoon oil
Salt to taste


In a 3 qt saute pan, heat oil over medium heat. After a couple of minutes, add mustard seeds and allow them to crackle, this may take a couple of minutes and you will hear/ see the mustard seeds crackle.
Add cumin seeds, jalapeno, curry leaves and saute for a minute.
Add beans and cook covered for about 10 minutes, on medium low heat by adding about 1/4 cup water. Stir every couple of minutes.
Finally, add coconut, adjust salt and mix well. Cover it again and set aside. Serve hot.
