FRENCH BEANS FOOGATH

Foogath is a dry Goan vegetable side dish, cooked with a hint of coconut which can goes well with warm phulkas or plain rice. This is a mildly spiced, simple, easy and healthy side dish. French Beans Foogath sounds absolutely delish!


INGREDIENTS:

250 gm Finely Chopped French Beans (Green Beans)
1 tsp Mustard Seeds
10-12 Curry Leaves
1/2 Cup Freshly Grated Coconut
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder (Haldi)
2-3 Finely Chopped Green Chilies
1 Onion (Chopped)
1/8 tsp Asafoetida (Hing)
1 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste
1 tbsp Chopped Cilantro / Coriander leaves


METHOD:



Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. When it starts to crackle, add curry leaves, green chilies, and asafoetida.

Mix onion in it. Fry till onion gets translucent. 

Now add french beans in it. Fold well and mix turmeric powder and salt in it. Cook uncovered for 4-5 minutes on medium heat or till french beans are tender. (Don't cover at this time, otherwise you will not get that glossy green colour of the french beans)

Add Coconut and fold it nicely for a minute. Turn off the heatnow.


Remove it on a bowl. Garnish with grated coconut and chopped cilantro. Serve warm with phulkas or dal-rice, it is yummy and healthy too.
