One of the best green bean dishes I ever had! I used some more curry leaves (about 20 I think) because I wanted to use them up, and I like their flavor very much. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting! Made for India - More Than Just Curries Tag Game.

Made this last night and will definitely be making it again. Very good, very authentic South Indian flavor. I used bay leaves, don't have curry leaves. And, as I could not find unsweetened flaked coconut, I used a fresh coconut and blitzed it in the processor, but didn't have time to dry it. Am anxious to try it w/ dried coconut, and am on the hunt for curry leaves. Thanks!

DH and I very much enjoyed this, although I didn't use shredded coconut.... I know! but I don't like it! I know it would change the character of the dish, and I probably had a slightly looser curry, but nonetheless we very much enjoyed this unusual dish, aromatic and spicy without being overly hot. Green beans are one of my favourite vegetables and it was great to use them in a different fashion, I shall make this again , thank you Michael!

Oh my gosh, this was seriously good! I really enjoyed all the flavors. I've never had something like this, with the coconut. I didn't read the directions properly and chopped up the bay leaf and added it with the coconut, but it didn't matter, it was still so good. Thanks Michael for a great tasting green bean dish!
