Directions

Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven, and cook the onion over high heat, stirring, until well-browned and soft.
Add the curry leaves, ginger, garlic, and coconut and stir and cook about 1 minute. Add the chicken, turmeric, asafoetida and salt, and cook, turning the pieces occasionally, until the outside of the chicken is browned.
Add the coconut milk and stir, then cover the pan and reduce heat to medium and simmer for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and tender.
Add the green beans and peas, and cook just until they are bright green and tender-crisp. Remove from heat, and transfer the food to a serving bowl, garnish with the chopped cilantro.

Serve over hot steamed basmati rice (brown or white)
