READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Sana7149

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
