This is a quick & easy green beans recipe from Sri Lankan Cuisine. We don’t use coconut milk here as of most of other Sri Lankan recipes. We like this as a side dish & well goes with plain rice. If you check this Green Beans Curry recipe, the steps are more similar to this dish, but finally we add coconut milk to make it as a curry. Sometimes it is interesting to see how the flavor is different from each dish only by changing an ingredient.
