String Beans Fry with Coconut

I was introduced to frozen french cut beans by my husband and i too for 2 years stick to them inspite of getting fresh beans outside, may be because iam reluctant to change or lazy to cut them and cook. Once my friend made this curry and i feel like i lost something in my version of beans and yeah that is taste..the taste of freshness. Now, Frequently i will be seen digging up fresh beans at my local farm market.

Fresh StringBeans - 1/4 kg
Freshly grated coconut- 1/2 cup
Curry leaves, Red chillies, Mustard seeds, cumin,urad dal and chana dal for tempering.
Dhaniya powder- 1/2 tbsp

Clean and cut the beans into small pieces(requires patience but can cut 5,6 beans to save time). Now boil the cut beans till they are cooked. In a pan take 3,4 tbsp of oil and fry all the tempering ingredients. I would like to add 1 tbsp more urad dal and chana dal than normal bcz they will give nice look. Add the cooked cut beans and fry for sometime. Add salt, chillipowder and turmeric. Add grated coconut and fry for 2 min in meduim heat. Sprinkle dhaniya powder just before finishing. Goes well with rice and rotis.

Hi Sudha,
I do make this fry and really goes nice with hot rice and sambar rice.
Pineapple pie looks yummy.
