1 tablespoon black mustard seeds
1lb green beans, cut into 1/4 in ch pieces
2 red chili peppers, broken in half
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Heat the oil to medium-low heat in a large pan and add the urud dhal and black mustard seeds. Once the seeds begin to pop, add the green beans and the red chili peppers.
