Green Bean and Carrot Curry

I love winter, for a long list of reasons. Winters bring riots of colors in the kitchen, the everyday orange carrots are replaced by this bright red color ones. The mundane green beans become a little more greener.I love them all. I made this vegetable dish just in a whim, with no definite recipe in mind, just getting allured by the fresh produce. And it turned out good and tasty, and of course healthy.


Green beans - 2 cups, cut in 1 inch pieces
Carrots - 2 large, diced
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Ginger paste- 1 teaspoon
Nigella seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Green chillies - 1
Oil- 1/2 tablespoon
Salt to taste

Cut the vegetables, you can also add whatever you have, wash and drain.

Heat oil in a pan, add nigella seeds, and add the vegetables. Saute them for few minutes till they get soft.

Add the grated coconuts to it and mix them well.

Add ginger paste and salt, mix them well and cover with lid till cooked completely. The veggies will release water and get cooked by it, but you can add few tablespoons of water if required.

And, here you go, ready to be eaten with warm white rice or roti. I told, you, its that super easy.

And you feel good about feeding your loved ones healthy.
