Green Beans with fresh Coconut
Green Beans - 1 lb, trimmed and chopped into small pieces
Olive Oil - 1 tbsp
Nigella Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Green Chili / Jalapeno - 1 or 2, chopped
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Fresh Coconut - 1/2 cup, grated
Heat a large skillet. Add the oil and the nigella seeds. When the seeds begin to sizzle, add the chopped green chilies. Wait for a couple of seconds and add the chopped green beans.
Sprinkle salt and turmeric. Mix well and cover and cook for a couple of minutes. Remove cover and cook, tossing frequently till the beans are just cooked and still crunchy.
Add the grated fresh coconut and mix well. Cook for a minute more and then remove from heat. Serve hot.
