Coconut Green Beans

This is one of the many Indian ways of making green beans and no doubt the simplest one. 

You will need:

  • Chopped green beans, in 1/2″ long pieces
  • 3 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 1/2 tea spoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Salt
  • 1 table spoon dry coconut
  • 1 table spoon olive oil


  1. Heat the oil in the pan
  2. Add garlic and sauté’ it till till turns golden brown, follow it with black pepper
  3. Add green beans to the pan and turn it for a while but don’t let it cook completely, it needs to maintain its crisp.
  4. Add salt and coconut. Keep turning it till you start smelling crisp coconut.
