Ingredients

    ~~~~~Spice Ball~~~~~~~~~
    1/4 cup grated coconut
    1 green chile/jalapeno, seeds removed and chopped
    2 coves of garlic, chopped small
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 tsp ground coriander
    1/4 tsp paprika
    1/4 tsp tumeric
    1 tsp salt
    1/4 cup water

    1 Tbs mustard seeds
    1 Tbs uncooked basmati rice
    1/2 tsp olive oil (for pan)
    20 oz frozen green beans

Directions

Combine all ingredients in "spice ball" in mortar. Grind into a rough paste/ball with pestle. Set aside.

In a covered skillet, sprayed with a 3 second spray of atomized olive oil (about 1/2 tsp), fry the mustard seeds, and raw long grain rice until the mustard seeds pop and the rice turns white (about 1 minute). Add the green beans, stir, cover again and cook for about 5 minutes.

Add the ~spice ball~ stir to combine, and cook for an additional 5 minutes until the spices and garlic are fragrant.

Let cool to room temperature (not an easy task!) and enjoy.
Will last in the fridge for 3-4 days, but that is not likely! =)

Makes 4 I-Cup servings.
