Brown Mustard Seeds and Dinner Outside
So let's start with coriander chutney. Condiment #1.
This month's Cooking Light has a recipe for Pork Vindaloo with Raita.
I also found these wonderful champagne mangoes that are perfectly ripe for mango chutney.
Condiment #3. And I bought a whole bag of Vidalia onions. Let's make a
pickled onion chutney as condiment #4.
I also have store bought Garlic Relish
and tomato chutney to round it out. And if that isn't enough, let's round run out to the Indian grocer to pick up some spices and what do you know, they are selling just made samosas.
I've got to buy them (they were the hottest thing in the whole dinner. I decided that all the Indian cookbooks must chill the heat down for the American palate. Unfortunately, we like it hot!). I decide to make some naan to use for dipping.
Main course and condiment #2.
I had these wonderful green beans from CostCo. Hmmmm. Green beans with coconut and brown mustard seed with basmati rice. Side 1 and 2.
The recipe we are going to provide is for the green beans because they were new and yummy and easy. Brown mustard seeds are a great addition. We used them in the mango chutney as well. A perfect ingredient to submit to this weeks Weekend Herb Blogging hosted by the cookin' founder Kalyn at Kalyn's Kitchen. Be sure to go to this site Sunday evening or Monday morning for great reads from foodies around the world.
Green Beans with Coconut and Brown Mustard Seed
1 lb. green beans
1 tea. turmeric
2 T sesame oil
1 tea brown mustard seeds
1 hot pepper, seeded and diced
1/3 cup shredded coconut
2 T chopped coriander leaves
Parboil the green beans in salted water with a teaspoon of turmeric until just
barely tender, about 7 minutes. Drain and cool. Heat oil and mustard seed until
mustard seeds start to pop. Add coconut and peppers and cook one minute. Add green beans and mix well, heating through. Add coriander leaves and serve.
Yum. And it is so beautiful out, that the hus makes a table for is in the middle
of the field so we eat outside with no bugs. Talk about a beautiful evening with wonderful friends and great food!
