"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.

serrano peppers, thinly sliced
fresh curry leaves
salt to taste
fresh green beans, trimmed
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!
We loved this one ... perfect over brown basmati rice for a vegetarian entree ... I just wish I had increased the recipe ... as written it was just enough for my husband and I for dinner - no seconds :-(
I loved it! I doubled the recipe.I chopped up the frozen green beans from my garden last fall into tiny tiny pieces.I chopped chicken breast into tiny tiny pieces added it.Put in a 400 ml can of72% less fat coconut milk.Next time I will try coconut oil instead of vegetable oil
leave out coconut milk--diluted the good curry flavors
I liked it a lot too but would recommend cutting the green beans in bite size pieces and adding some chicken or pork. I didn't have the curry leaves or fenugreek seeds, but wouldn't mind trying to find them for the next time I make this. Very fragrant and flavorful dish!
My husband and I loved this one. I used it as a side dish to Tandoori chicken. I used coconut oil instead of olive oil to mirror the coconut milk and I followed the spices exactly. I couldn't get enough! That's my photo. Such a yummy recipe deserves a photo!
