To crush together
- 1/2 cup grated coconut I use freshly frozen that I buy from our local Indian store
- 4-5 pearl onions peeled and cut
- 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
- 1/2 tsp red chilli powder / cayenne
Crush together the coconut, pearl onions, cumin seeds and red chilli powder in a mortar and pestle and keep aside.
Heat the oil in a kadhai and add the mustard seeds. Once they splutter, add the curry leaves and the chopped yard long beans.
Add the turmeric powder and salt and mix well. Sprinkle a little water over it and cover and cook over medium heat, till the beans are cooked. This should take about 8-10 mins.
Now add the crushed coconut mixture to this and mix well. Remove from heat and serve hot with rice and sambar or any other vegetable curry.
