A VEG A DAY-BEANS AND POTATOES WITH A HEALTHY QUOTIENT



Beans are loved by us all,and as far as possible we do try to fix the our daily dose of the cooked veg w/o oil & if using oil,a tsp at the most,of olive oil.

Ok coconut aint the healthiest thing but at least some brownie points on one count .ie,no oil,yet this one is healthier than many a daily veg dish..Have a couple of takes on this,like i splutter mustard seeds & then roast the onion,garlic ,coconut/coconut juice & then add beans(will post that too,till then wont this do)This is a quick one pan method,all u need is to chop,Place in the pan,ignite the gas top & stir a few times while checking on seasoning.
I came across thiswonderfull blog with a better event and i was full on for this one.
I wanted to bring in all my yellow(read-turmeric) hued delicacies along.
And i was introduced to this blog all thanx to





BEANS WITH BAKED JACKET POTATO

3 medium sized bunches of long beans

2 medium onions

3 tbh coconut grated with a tbh of garlic(food processor)

a small piece of jaggery/sugar
a tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp lime juice

salt to taste

METHOD

1. Chop onions finely,add to the pan with grated coconut & garlic. Chop beans as u like,add that too with the rest of the ingredients & a tbh of water.

2. Place pan on fire & cook on high,covered for 3 mins,this releases water & ensures it cooks in its own steam. Stir well.Cook again till done.Check seasoning.

3. OPTIONAL- add a cubed baked potato to this towards the end,i did,a lovely addition
  

 I sure could do with a garnish of cilantro or capsicum but then we had a green salas with loads of cilanro so skipped it here.
Goes really well with steamed rice,a curry,salad & fried fish.
The beans i used are a local variety called 'vaal',long gg beans,dont know if they string beans or what but will check on this one.
