You can make this with French Beans or Pole Beans or Cabbage (cut like cole slaw).
Pole Beans are high in fiber. Also when you cut beans, do not cut the end of it (the one which tapers) since all the vitamins are there.
This makes 5 to 6 Servings.
Beans - Cut about 3 cups
Oil - 1 Tea Spoon
Salt - 1 Tea Spoon
Sugar 1 pinch
Turmeric powder - ½ Tea Spoon
Mustard Seeds - ½ Tea Spoon
Urad Dal - 2 Tea Spoon
Red Chili - 1
Curry leaves and Corainder
-->Cut the beans and add them in a pan, add very little water, add the salt and sugar and turmeric powder and cover and keep the stove in a medium flame.
Adding the sugar to the beans, retains the green color.
--> Check the beans every 5 mins to make sure they dont get burnt and add some water if you need to. Steam till the beans are soft.
-->Once the beans are cooked, in a seperate pan, add the oil, and once the oil is hot, add the mustard seeds, and once they start to sputter, add the urad dal to it and saute till they get golden brown.
-->Garnish with Curry leaves and Coriander Leaves
You can add fresh ground coconut to this also.
