Beans Poriyal With Moong Dhal

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................

Basic Information

Preparation Time ~ 15 minutes
Cooking Time ~ 20 minutes
Serves ~2-3


Beans(finely chopped)11/2 cups

Mustard seeds/kadugu1/2 tsp
Urad dhal/uluthamparuppu1tsp
Red chilly/varamlagai1(broken)
Asafoeitda/perungayama pinch
Curry leaves/karivepillaifew 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.
