    Default French Beans with Grams


    French beans – a bunch, chopped
    Grated coconut – 2 Tablespoons (I didn’t have fresh coconut on the day and substituted it with coconut powder. The result was just as yummy though).
    Urad Dal – 1 Teaspoon
    Chana Dal – 1 Teaspoon
    Curry leaves – 10-15
    Cumin seeds – Teaspoon
    Mustard seeds – Teaspoon
    Dry red chili – 1
    Salt to taste


    1. Heat oil in skillet and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, the two types of grams or dal, red chili and curry leaves.

    2. When mustard seeds begin to splutter, add the chopped beans and salt to taste. Add a little water, cover the skillet, and cook on low heat until beans are tender.

    3. Add the grated coconut/coconut powder, mix well, and serve hot with parantha or chapatti.
