    4       tb           Butter
    1       t            Black Mustard Seeds
      1/2   c            Onion-finely chopped
    1       t            Fresh Ginger Root
                         -scraped and finely chopped
    1       t            Salt
      1/2   ts           Freshly Ground Black Pepper
    1       lb           Fresh Green Beans
                         -trimmed and cut crosswise
                         -into paper thin rounds
      1/4   ts           Ground Red Pepper
      1/4   c            Unsweetened Coconut
    2       tb           Fresh Coriander-chopped
    2       tb           Lemon Juice
 
   In a 10-inch heavy skillet or 12-inch wok, heat the
   butter over moderate heat until a drop of cold water
   flicked into it splutters instantly. Add the mustard
   seeds and fry for 30 seconds. Thoroughly stir in the
   onions, ginger, salt and pepper, and drop in the green
   beans. Stirring constantly, add the red pepper and fry
   for 5 minutes longer. Add the coconut and coriander,
   reduce the heat to low, and cover the pan. Stirring
   occasionally, cook for 10 minutes more, or until the
   beans are tender. Sprinkle with lemon juice, taste for
   seasoning, and serve at once.
