Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 fresh green chillies, deseeded and chopped
  • A bunch of curry leaves
  • 2 onions, peeled and shredded
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • A pinch of ground cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon garam masala
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric

  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • A handful of haricots verts (green beans)
  • A handful of peas

Directions

Heat the oil in a pan and fry the mustard seeds for 2 to 3 minutes or until they start to pop.

Add the chillies, curry leaves, onions, coriander (cilantro), cumin seeds, garam masala, turmeric, and chilli powder. Stir and cook over a medium heat until the onion is soft. Stir in the chopped tomatoes.

    The potatoes took a long time to cook in this recipe. I recommend boiling them first before adding.
