Beans Poriyal

I love beans. This is one such veggie which can easily grow in the back yard. I got this recipe from Sarah's Vazhayila. There are many ways to make this Poriyal (Thoran like Sarah calls it). Her beans looks FAR better than mine, do take a look at her blog :) I usually chop veggies during weekends and usually chop beans this size (1 inch). Her recipe calls the beans to be chopped in small rounds. But otherwise I followed her recipe to the T. You can get the recipe from Vazhayila or you can get it here. I am posting this here for my future reference. The looks don't match the wonderful taste it had.
Ingredients:
Long Beans: 1 lb
Grated coconut: 4 tbsp
Shallots: 4 or 1 small onion

Garlic: 2 cloves
Green chili chopped: 2
Dried red chili: 1
Mustard seeds: 1 tsp
Curry leaves: 1 string
Salt: 1 tsp or according to taste
Oil: 1 tbsp

Method:
  • Chop the beans in circles.
  • Grind the onions, green chili and garlic. To this add the coconut and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they dance around, add the red chili, curry leaves followed by beans and salt. 
  • Fry the beans until they are cooked. This should take about 5-10 mins on medium flame.
  • Add the ground onions mixture and stir for another couple of minutes. 
  • Serve warm.
