Green Beans Poriyal
This is another simple stir fry dish to serve with rotis.
Here's how I make them:
2 cups chopped green beans
For tempering - oil, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafotida, udad dal, turmeric pwd, broken dry red chilli peppers and curry leaves
Salt to taste
Shredded coconut to garnish
Make the tempering by heating the oil, adding the mustard seeds, once they stop spluttering add the rest of the tempering ingredients. Fry for 2 mins. Then add the green beans. Add 1/2 cup water, cover and cook till done, stirring in between and adding some more water if required. To save time, I usually like to cook the chopped green beans in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles. I just add this cooked beans. Either method are okay here. Add salt as desired.
Serve garnished with shredded coconut.
This Green Beans Poriyal also goes to the Complete My Thali event at Seduce Your Tastebuds. This event was started by Jagruti.
