Number of Servings: 8


    2 lbs green beans (you can also use frozen french cut beans)
    1 tbsp canola oil
    2 tbsp Urad dal (Indian grocery)
    1/2 tsp black mustard seeds(Indian grocery)
    1/4 tsp asafoetida(Indian grocery)
    1/2 tsp cumin seeds
    5-6 green chilis sliced

    salt to taste


Wash & chop the green beans. I prefer them chopped fine. Heat oil in a sauce pan, add mustard and cumin seeds. When they are done spluttering add the urad dal and green chillis and asafoetida. Add the green beans. Cover and cook for a few min. And then cook uncovered (else the beans change color). Add salt to taste. And add the shredded coconut. You can cook until beans are soft. I prefer it al dente. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
