Judging from the ingredients and the language in the recipe, this is obviously of Indian origin (as in the country of India). The serving sizes there are much smaller than the super-sized portion usually found here in the US. Most Indian chefs I have followed online would say that about a half cup serving of this is one portion - because it is meant to be served with several other dishes, like a dal, some chappati or naan, maybe a meat curry. They would also consider it to be a fairly "quick to fix" dish, as they seem to be very efficient in the kitchen (I suggest people take a look at some south Indian cuisine websites (there are many fine ones), and this recipe might make more sense.) For those unfamiliar with the terms, "french beans" are haricots vert - the skinny small green beans curd is plain yogurt(unflavored), frying onions till "pink" means frying (red) onions until translucent (red onions are preferred in a lot of Indian recipes). Chopped coriander is of course fresh cilantro leaves. This dish is evidently meant to be primarily a rice dish accented with small amounts of vegetables. Serve with a meat curry and perhaps some dal and naan, it should serve four people comfortably. One cup of raw rice should cook up into at least two cups cooked, so the entire dish should be divided into fourths for serving - probably will give about 2/3 cup each, which is more than adequate for an adult. REALLY.

NO way does this serve 4 people...with 5 crummy green beans! I don't think so!!!
