Add 1 tsp of coconut oil to a pan and cook the beans on high heat for 2-3 minutes adding salt and pepper to taste. Keep aside.
In a wok add 1 tsp of coconut oil, mustard seeds and sesame seeds and sauté. Then add the spice paste, curry leaves, fresh turmeric and a little water to sauté it all together.
Add the stir-fried beans to the wok along with the jaggery and apple cider vinaigrette and add a little water and cook for a further 3-4 minutes together till the flavors combine well. Cover and let cook in the residual heat for a short while.
