#37 : Beans Kobbari Kura ~ Beans and Coconut Stir-Fry

Wow! time flies. It is September already. I still have a long way to go to complete this challenge.  When I first started it, I felt documenting 50 recipes was an easy doable task. Really? What was I thinking! :-) Life has been busy and I was not able to spend a lot of time on this blog. I did cook quite a bit and never found the patience to photograph and blog here. I hope to be more active in the coming months. I jotted down today's recipe  from my mom-in-law last year. I had  fallen is love with it as when she made this beans and coconut curry for lunch. Since then i have made it several times. Surely one of my favorites from her!
