Wash and cut beans and Seeme badane kai.( remove the outer skin ) . Boil with one cup of water till they are soft. Keep them aside. Now grind  fresh and grated coconut with green chillies till paste with little water
 and remove from the jar.
Now keep a pan on the fire. Add boiled Seeme badane kai and beans. Add ground coconut mixture. Add salt and boil for 3 to 5 minutes. Mix in between while boiling. Pu it in a serving bowl. Now keep a small pan and add ghee or oil . Add  mustard seeds and jeera . Let the mustard spurt. Add  curry leaves and majjege menasu and fry nicely till the chillies are black. Put this mixture to the boiled curry.  Mix it well.  When this curry is warm add thick curd and mix thoroughly and serve with Hot rice or chapatis or dosas.

Note: The vegetables must be cooked till soft.( Do not over cook). Add fresh coconut to get better taste. Can add red chillies instead of majjige menasu. ( the taste differ).  Do not make the curry watery.  It should be thick. Can add 1/4 spoon of  soaked raw rice while grinding coconut.  Adding soaked raw rice help the curry to get thick soon.
