Green Beans Thoran (Green Beans With Coconut)
30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
15 ingredients
4 servings
A delicious accompaniment to almost any Indian meal, this Kerala classic can be prepared with French beans, stringless beans, the oriental asparagus bean known as lobhia, or in fact almost any kind of firm vegetable cut into small pieces. Adjust the amount of chili to your personal preference. The original recipe called for 5 tablespoons vegetable oil, but this can be easily cut down. Use coconut oil, if you wish, to be authentic. For your convenience, this dish can be cooked ahead, and heated gently at the time of serving. Adapted from a recipe by Madhur Jaffrey.
