Beans Poriyal | Beans Thoran | Beans Stir Fry

Beans poriyal , a simple stir fry made from  beans & moong dal flavored with grated coconut & coconut oil. It is one of the easiest and tastiest poriyal that you can make in minutes and it's usually served as a accompaniment for South Indian meals. 

Though I'm not a big bean lover, I love this poriyal so much. Adding moong dal and coconut give great flavor and taste to the poriyal. Amma always suggests to use coconut oil for tempering in addition to the grated coconut for any poriyal. It brings out the flavor of coconut very well even with less grated coconut. So I highly recommend using coconut oil for tempering in this poriyal.

Here in the recipe, i have cooked the dal & beans in a open pot. But you can also pressure cook them in pressure cooker for 1 whistle and then do the tempering for a quick fix. Often i do make that way and still it tastes great. 

Make sure not to over cook them, both beans and moong dal shouldn't be mashed otherwise the poriyal won't taste good. As i said earlier, it can be served as accompaniment for any south indian meal. My personal favorite are with sambar and vatha kuzhambu. If you have followed me on IG, you might knew this already !
