Green bean curry prepared by Yusra Ali.Jason Lang

Adapted from Yusra and Mohamed Ali Makim, this is a more or less dry curry, with only a little coconut milk added for sweetness and balance. The garnish, known as Maldive fish flakes or fish chips, is very firm dried and cured pieces of tuna, sold in jars and often ground into a powder. Much like finely chopped anchovies or a dash of fish sauce, this is used to add savory depth.
