Carrot Beans and Peas Poriyal

Starting the 3rd week of blogging Marathon #90 with everyday lunch/dinner recipes.Being a rice eater most of our weekday lunch or dinner would be a simple South Indian cooking.As kids's prefer to eat rice once in a day, I do a veggie poriyal and some sambar or kuzhambhu variety.

For day 1,I sharing a poriyal recipe with mixed veggies and green lentil(moong dhal).I make this poriyal whenever I have a small portion of those veggies.It pairs very well with sambar spicy kuzhambhu varieties.This recipe is a no onion-garlic version and all the veggies are homegrown.

    • Add in the remaining veggies,salt,red chilly powder and green chilly.Mix it well and cook it covred in a medium flame for 5-6 minutes or until the veggies are cooked.

    • Serve it along with rice and kulambhu.

    • Since I wanted the dhal to be slightly mushy,Soake it for 10 minutes.If you want it to be separated then no need to soak.
    • Finely chopped shallots can also be added in the tempering.

    Nice to have all these vegetables growing in the garden. Very colorful and nutritious.

    We make poriyal with beans and carrot, but adding green peas is new to me. The poriyal looks delicious and colorful!

    That's one of my favorite poriyals I came rushing to check out your everyday meal, nice one..

    beautiful poriyal - great use of summer produce

    Good one, Nalini. Makes it a delight if they are homegrown and fresh.

    This poriyal looks awesome and colorful. I do prepare this poriyal in the same way and we all love it so much.

    Just a prefect side dish to enjoy with hot piping rasam rice. Lovely medley of vegetables. Healthy and colourful side dish.

    A simple yet colorful poriyal. You have captured it well

    I am yet to make beans poriyal and this version with carrots and peas sounds more tempting.
