Peel the carrot & cut into small pieces,similarly cut beans into small pieces. Heat a kadai, add the moong dal & roast for 2 mins, then add 1cup of water.

Now add carrot & beans and bring water to boil. Once the water comes to boil, keep the flame in low . Then cover it & cook the veggies.

Now grind the ingredients listed under "To grind"  into coarse paste and keep it ready. 

Once the veggies are half cooked, add the chili paste & salt and allow the veggies to cook completely.

Once the veggies are cooked, all the water will be absorbed, if not, keep the flame in high and allow  the water to evaporate.

Finally add the grated coconut & temper the ingredients listed under "To temper" & add it into veggies and switch off the flame.

Simple & Tasty Carrot-Beans Poriyal is ready. This is  a great accompaniment for sambar, karakuzhambu or even rasam.

  • You can add cooked peas into this poriyal.
  • Coconut oil gives great flavor to this poriyal, so i would recommend to use that.
  • Don't cook the veggies as mushy.
  • Sometimes, i make this poriyal without moong dal too. It tastes equally good.
