Green Bean Curry Recipe

When we served this green bean curry for the first time and everyone asked for seconds. This is a sure sign that the dinner was a success. The green bean recipe had a mild flavor and was not too hot.

Although we chose the milder chili variety, there must be a better way to cut them. My hands felt hot long after the dinner was finished. It was a strange sensation it wasn’t my tongue that burned but my fingers.

While enjoying this curry recipe I became aware of the fact the flavors were all nicely balanced and ingredients brought out the best in each other.
