Simple Green Beans Poriyal/Koora
Beans - 2 cups chopped
Onion - 1 small chopped fine
Garlic - 3 flakes crushed
Coconut grated - 2 tbsp
Green chillies - 3 slit/chopped
Curry leaves - few
Mustard seeds and urad dhal - 1/2 tsp together
Salt as needed
Oil - 1 tbsp
Place beans in a microwavable container and sprinkle some water and cook in the microwave for 8 - 10 minutes alternatively you can cook on stove top by adding water just enough for immersing and cook till they are soft.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds , urad dhal and curry leaves. When they splutter up add chopped onions, green chillies and crushed garlic( optional). Fry till onions turn nice brown and add cooked beans and salt. Mix in well and add grated coconut. Mix everything together again for 1- 2 minutes and remove. This goes well as a side dish with rice.
The curry leaves placed on top are plucked fresh from my pot :D. Will post some pictures from my garden very soon. They are still coming up with great difficulty with all those little bunnies in the garden.
