“I ate this with rice or coconut roti almost every evening in Sri Lanka-- I could not get enough of it! Using fresh ingredients is of the utmost importance. Some of the ingredients may be difficult to find, but they really are essential. This goes very well with rice as a vegetarian entree or alone as a side dish. ”

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook the onion, serrano pepper, garlic, and curry leaves in the oil until the onions are golden brown. Stir in the curry powder, fenugreek seeds, turmeric, and salt; cook another 3 minutes. Add the green beans to the mixture and stir until evenly coated. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the beans are al dente. Pour in the coconut milk and simmer at least 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in the lime juice just before serving.

Wow! The taste of Asia! Thanks for the great recipe. We didn't have the curry leaves and I used only about 1 teaspoon of the lime juice but it smelled and tasted just like we were back in Asia.

I used this more for inspiration...so I don't know if I have a right to rate it. I added chicken for the carnavore hubby and some shredded coconut and the whole can of c.milk to make more sauce - oh and a handful of dried apricots. Was sooo yummy...thanks for the headstart on my inspiration for dinner!

Like everyone else, I didn't have exactly the right ingredients, but it is a good basic recipe that you can do a lot with! I didn't have serrano peppers, curry leaves or fenugreek seeds, but added a Tbsp of garam masala and some red pepper flakes to the spices. I also pre-cooked and sliced some chicken, and added them in with the green beans. It turned out great!
