Curry leaves - 5-6 leaves torn,
Coconut grated - 1 tablespoon,

Cook beans in as little water as possible with  little salt and a pinch of sugar.

Do not cover and cook as the beans may lose it fresh green colour.
After beans is cooked, drain the water completely  and plunge them into ice cold water, to avoid further cooking and also to retain the green colour.
