Spicy green beans with unsweetened coconut. Great with curries. Black mustard seeds can be found at spice shops.

This was delicious even though it was hard not to quickly burn the onions, even on the lowest heat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 10-inch heavy skillet or 12-inch wok, heat the butter over moderate heat until a drop of cold water dropped into it splutters instantly. Add the mustard seeds and fry for 30 seconds.
  2. Thoroughly stir in the onion, ginger, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the green bean pieces. Stirring constantly, add the cayenne and fry for 5 minutes longer.
  4. Add the coconut and cilantro, reduce the heat to low, and cover the pan. Stirring occasionally, cook for 5-8 minutes more, or until the beans are crisp-tender.
  5. Sprinkle with lemon juice, taste for seasoning, and serve at once.
