Green Bean Thoran

This is a traditional Kerala side dish.I added a few southwestern U.S. twists to it.I recommend having all ingredients measured out and ready when you start the cooking process as some of the steps go quickly.

  • Remove bacon from pan leaving bacon grease behind. Add mustard and fenugreek seeds to pan. Saute until mustard seeds pop, about 1 minute.

  • Add onion and saute for 2 minutes.

  • Add green chili and saute for another minute.

  • Add spices, garlic and bacon to the pan and saute for an additional minute.

  • Add cut green beans. Saute for two minutes and mix thoroughly. Add 1 Tbsp water to the pan, cover and reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes stirring occasionally.

  • Add cooked Anasazi beans to pan, stir and cover for two minutes to allow for the beans to heat through.

  • Add shredded coconut to the dish and stir so the coconut absorbs any remaining liquid in the pan. The dish is now done. Enjoy!
