Asian Flat Beans Stirfry!

Two weekends ago, I made Stir-fried Asian Flat Beans. I haven't had Asian Green Beans in a very long time and it was indeed quite a treat! For those who may not know what Asian Flat Beans are, here is a picture.
  1. 1 LB Asian Flat Beans, diced
  2. 6 curry leaves, whole or shredded
  3. 4 Red Chilies
  4. 1 Tbsp chopped ginger
  5. 1 Tsp Mustard seeds
  6. 1 Tsp Urad dal
  7. 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  8. 4 Tbsp shredded coconut (fresh/fresh-frozen/dry)
  9. A dash of Asafoetida powder
  10. 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro
  1. In a large pan, heat up the coconut oil. Add the asafoetida, mustard seeds, let splutter.
  2. Turn down the heat to low and add the red chilies, Urad dal, curry leaves, coconut and the ginger.
  3. Next, add the diced Asian Flat Beans and cook for a few minutes on medium.
  4. Put the lid back on the pot and let the beans cook on low heat. Putting the lid back on kinda steams the beans, Al Dente, but not mushy!
  5. Add a pinch of salt. Garnish with cilantro.
  6. Mix thoroughly!
 Here is how my prep looked!

This stir-fry can be eaten as is or with rice or flat breads.

Bon Appetit' :)
