    Sana's Note:

    This recipe is actually a south Indian recipe. Usually made with fresh grated coconut.But, I make it with dessicated coconut and it still turns out great. Adjust the seasoning to your taste as they are guesstimates. Serve with rice or indian bread

      Made exactly as written. I was looking for a recipe for green beans by Vij, but no luck so I thought I would try this one. Very good, easy & I had all ingredients at the ready. Served with Vij's Lamb in Creamy Cardmom curry. GG

      Delicious! I had some fresh green beans and I have never loved green beans so I was looking for an interesting way to cook them. I didn't use ginger or chiles because i didn't have any. Regardless, , this dish was a hit with my whole family (ten year old included). I served it over brown rice as a side dish. I now like green beans and will make this again soon!

      Wonderful! So aromatic and the taste lives up to the aroma. I used dried coconut and frozen beans--now I can't wait to make this again with fresh beans which will soon be at the farm market. Really a lovely dish. Thanks, Sana!
