Keralan Green Bean Vegetarian Curry

Print is recipe
vegetarian bean curry

Southern regions of india  is the main area for coconut plantations so they are very cheap and nutritious, naturally  it is no wonder that they use this healthy  ingredient to flavour many of their curries. This vegetarian green bean curry was inspired by my trip to the keralan region in 2016. We have adapted the recipe to show you how to use with our ready made curry blends curry madras mild or curry Bombay madras for a hotter version.
This is a versatile vegetarian / vegan curry and you can add or make this curry with other vegetables such as cauliflower, carrots, or  broccoli. We love the simplicity of one ingredient curries, as you can pair with other curries for a more balanced meal.
