Wash and chop beans into small pieces.
In a blender or mixer, add grated coconut, green chili, garlic, cumin seeds and turmeric powder. Grind coarsely without adding water.(Give 1 pulse).
Heat coconut oil in pan. Splutter mustard seeds. Add chopped shallots, dry red chillies, and curry leaves. When the onion turns light brown in color, add ground coconut mix and saute for 2 minutes.
