carrot beans poriyal recipe
One of the simplest poriyal / stir fry, carrot beans poriyal. I have been thinking of posting this for long time, then thought its too simple to post, but now thought it can help beginners or bachelors. And I wanted to click this beautiful colourful poriyal very much, so at last, here it is! I love it a lot as side dish for rice or even to mix it with rice + ghee or sesame oil, just the way we used to eat when we were kids. Yes those days we never eat our serving of vegetale, we ignore the side dish, so my mom used to mix it with rice and ghee before we eat sambar / kuzhambu.

  3. Lastly add the grated coconut and stir once, remove from fire.3-carrot-beans 

Notes

  • If you are making this for lunch box, after adding coconut, keep frying for 2 minutes in low flame. If you are consuming immediately, no need to cook after adding coconut.
  • Adding a pinch of sugar after adding vegetables helps the veggies retain their colour and crunch.
  • Do not over cook, let the veggies retain the crunchiness (but perfectly cooked, not uncooked).

Serve as accompaniment for rice with sambar or kuzhambu.
