2.2 pounds fillet mignon
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 chopped onion
1 pound green fava beans washed and chopped into small pieces

In a skillet, add 1/4 cup olive oil. Heat skillet and fry onions. Add garlic to skillet. Add green favas. Sautee on high heat for 5 minutes. Add salt and cumin. Add 2 cups water and cook favas on medium to low heat for about 35 minutes or until water is completely absorbed.
Add chopped cilantro to cooked favas. Set aside
Prepare a pot. Miss yoghurt with cornstarch. Place yoghurt on stove top. Add a pinch of salt and continue stirring until you bring yoghurt to a boil.
