Recently while I was at Thanjavur, in a restaurant I tasted this wonderful curry. Mentally noted down the ingredients...
Green Beans has impressive anti oxidant capacity, rich in nutrients like Vitamin C, Flavonoids, beta carotene and it has maximum number of health-promoting phyto nutrients, minerals and vitamins.

Both getting cooked perfectly. When beans is done, dhal also will be cooked to grainy texture. Now is the time to add salt.

Both done, the water also fully absorbed.

In a pan, add coconut oil, then add the seasonings mentioned above and then the Onions

Saute till the onions become golden, then add to the beans. Add the grated coconut too.
