With 1/2 cup water, add the string beans in a pan.
                   

                               When half cooked, add salt. If there is more water, slightly higher the flame. It                                      will get absorbed.

In another pan, add the coconut oil season the ingredients mentioned above. The Red chilly has been added just for colour. After the Urad dhal becomes golden, add the powdered coconut green chillies paste, and keeping the flames on the lowest, gently stir.


The paste will become dry.
