DIRECTIONS

  • Put the mustard seeds in a clean spice grinder and grind to a fine powder. Empty into a small bowl. Add 3/4 cup water and let soak for 20-30 minutes. DO NOT STIR. Set the mustard mixture aside.
  • Put the oil in a frying pan and set over medium-high heat.
  • Add the onion. Saute on medium heat until the onion is soft and just begins to take on color.
  • Put in the beans, salt, cilantro, and green chile. Stir for 1 minute.
  • Carefully pour the watery top of the mustard mixture over the green beans, making sure to leave all the thick paste behind (you do not need the thick paste). Stir to mix well.
  • Bring the beans to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and cover. Simmer very gently for 25 minutes, or until the beans absorb all the spices and lose some of their wetness. Serve hot.
