Beans Carrot Poriyal

Poriyal is a side dish made in Tamil Nadu. It is quite similar to Thoran made in Kerala. But subtle things make it different. They also kind of look they same. As I usually make a Thoran, I decided to make it a Poriyal style.


Carrots 8
Beans 20-30
Coconut 1/2 cup
Mustard 1/2 tsp
Urad Dal 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp

Oil and salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Finely chop carrots and beans.

2. Heat a little oil in a pan. Add mustard. When it sputters, add urad dal. When it starts to brown, add turmeric.

3. Add the chopped beans and carrots. Saute till it is cooked well.

4. Add coconut and salt. Mix well. Cook for another minute or 2 and switch off.


  1. I can eat that plateful curry right away...Looks Yumm!

    Yum! Yum! Yum!

  2. Love it with sambar rice... comfort side

  3. An excellent side dish for curd rice, one of our favourite combo.
