|Ingredients:||1 onion, peeled & chopped
2 Tbsp oil
1/2 lb green beans (left whole) or okra, washed & trimmed
1 tsp salt
1 tsp whole cumin seeds (I've also used ground)
1 Tbsp ground coriander
1 scant c of water
2 tomatoes, chopped
salt and pepper
cilantro to garnish
|Preparation:||Saute the onions in the oil in a medium saucepan for 5 minutes, then add
beans (or okra) salt, cumin and coriander. Mix well and cook gently,
uncovered, for 5 minutes.
Add water and tomatoes and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes, until
beans/okra are tender and most of the water has been absorbed. Shake the
pan or stir from time to time to prevent sticking.
Check seasoning, and sprinkle with the chopped fresh coriander. It's
great hot, warm, or even cold.
Variation: Add a medium sized eggplant, peeled and sliced, during the
onion saute stage.
