After sharing the Kitchen Basics for 3 days todayI am sharing you a simple beans poriyal with moong dhal.
Poriyal can be made in so many ways with or with no dhal,with coconut and this recipe is with both dhal and coconut.
I have already shared a version of beans poriyal with green peas but today's version can be made with both beans and carrot or only beans. Lets move on to the recipe................
Preparation Time ~ 15 minutes
Cooking Time ~ 20 minutes
|Beans(finely chopped)||11/2 cups|
|Mustard seeds/kadugu||1/2 tsp|
|Curry leaves/karivepillai||few leaves|
Cook the moong dhal in a boiling water till it becomes soft not mushy.Pulse the grated coconut and red chilly in a blender without adding any water and set it aside.
Heat a pan with oil and do the tempering,add the chopped shallots/onion and curry leaves for a minute.Then add the chopped beans and saute it for couple of minutes.Add the salt.
Now add around 1/4 cup of water and cook it covered in a medium flame till the beans become tender.At this stage add the cooked dhal and coconut and mix it well,keep it in a low flame for a minute.Put off the flame.
Simple beans poriyal is ready ,serve it with rice and kulambhu or sambar as an accompaniment.
- A pinch of turmeric powder can be added and instead of red chilly,red chilly powder can be used.
- Instead of moong dhal,channa dhal can also be used.
