Healthy Green Beans Curry with Coconut powder

Green Beans curry is a healthy and simple recipe which can served with rice or roti. When you bring Green Beans from grocery store don't wash them until you are ready to cook them. When you are ready to cook wash them under running water and let them dry for few mins. Then chop them into small pieces. It is one of my favorite green vegetables. I also use them in Chinese food, Vegetable Fried Rice, Vermicelli and Upma. Here is the process of making this easy recipe.
