Carrot and Beans Poriyal | Carrot and Beans Stir Fry | Side dishes for Rice | Poriyal Recipes

Carrot and Beans Stir fry or Carrot and Beans poriyal - is one of my sons favorite stir fry. Its always been a great task as a mom, to give some veggies to the children and need to run behind them to feed these veggies and say lots of stories to them. My children did the same, until they started eating this combination in Hotel Saravana Bhavan. After having tasted this stir fry, my son, started a liking to this carrot and bean stir fry and whenever I used to buy these veggies, my son, asks me to cook this poriyal. This recipe is not for the experienced cooks, but for the beginners and bachelors. Now we go the recipe and see how to make Carrot and Beans Poriyal.

3. Add the red chillies and fry for few min. Add the chopped onion and fry till they are translucent. Add in the salt and turmeric powder (optional).
4. Add in the veggies now sprinkling little water. Here you can use the excess water of the cooked moong dal if any or you can use the ordinary water. Do not add excess water as the veggies may over cooked and may loose their crunchiness. Add in the Moong dal now.
5. Give a stir and allow to cook. When the veggies got cooked, then add in the grated coconut and give a stir.

I get tired with using carrots for salads, hence using it for stir fry with spices is a good chance. Because we eat rice mostly, this is a great match with rasam (another fav of ours).
