All this week, the ladies from Cherry Bombe will be serving as guest editors on Food52: sharing recipes from their first issue, answering our questions, and co-hosting a Twitter chat on Thursday.

This is another of Jeanne D'Souza's recipes. It's a great time of year to make this, with green beans in season right now. It's simple to make and is a great way to make the basic green bean seem way more interesting.

Same Ki Bhaji

Serves 8

1 pound fresh string beans, finely chopped
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon whole black mustard seeds
1 teaspoon fresh ginger root, finely chopped
1 teaspoon garlic
1 to 2 whole dried red chilies, not crushed
1 to 2 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes
Salt to taste

See the full recipe (and save and print it) here.

This is awesome. This is the basic recipe for "poriyal" in TamilNadu,India for most green vegetables and greens. I use a tablespoon of cut shallots or onions and garlic.

What would be a good substitute for black mustard seeds?

You can skip the mustard seeds, but you can buy them in any near by Indian grocery shop.

Thanks! I knew I had seen them somewhere! I will skip them for tonight.
