Beans Coconut Stir Fry/ Beans Poriyal

Beans Coconut Stir Fry/ Beans Poriyal

Steamed beans is seasoned with mustard seeds, split black gram and curry leaves and finally garnished with fresh coconut in this classic south Indian stir fry.

Today I wanted to post a comfort food from my home. You can make this in few minutes. This stir fry is healthy and goes well with plain rice or any gravy. I always prefer individual veggies stir fry than the combination of few veggies.  I love beans and this stir-fry is my favorite, I even like to eat this with plain rice or sometimes add plain rice to it and enjoy as beans rice. You can very well combine with carrots, peas and make it as carrot beans stir fry. I do that when I have only few portions of each veggie in the refrigerator. I mix all the veggies like beans, carrot and peas and make a stir fry using everything. Poriyal is a preparation where the chopped or grated vegetables are sautéed in spices and topped with grated coconut sometimes. You can make poriyal with almost all veggies like beans, carrot, cabbage, chow chow/chayote, bitter gourd/pavakkai, bottle gourd, beetroot, okra, potato, broccoli, cauliflower, arbi/seppankezhangu , raw banana/ vazhakkai,and so on.
