Beans-Carrot thoran - Kerala style


Beans and carrot thoran is an excellent side dish with rice , moru curry and fish fry and I totally love thsi combo.
back home in Kerala , my mom usually makes this to finish off the left over beans and carrots after making a sambar  or avial, but somehow I ended up loving this combo than any conventional thorans

There is nothing fancy going on with the recipe here. I just blindly followed my usual recipe for thoran. Its so eye candy to look at them right? I assure you it tastes even better

Recipe for Kerala style Beans - carrot thoran ( stir fry with coconut)
Ingredients:-
Bowl 1
Beans chopped - 2 cup
Carrot grated - 1.5 to 2 cup
Shallots finely chopped - 3-4 ( or use half of a small onion)
Turmeric powder - a large pinch
Green chilies chopped - 2 -3
Ginger minced - a small piece ( optional)
Salt to taste
Bowl 2
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Turmeric powder 
Cumin - a pinch(optional)

Mustard seeds 
Curry leaves 
Oil

Method:-
Combine all ingredients in Bowl 1 and mix well with your hands.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.When they pop up add curry leaves and the mix in Bowl 1
Sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of water , keep everything to the center and cook it covered for 5 minutes or until they are cooked and the raw smell disappears.
Lightly crush grated coconut , turmeric and a pinch of cumin either in a blender or simply with your hands.
Uncover the pan , add this coconut mix and saute the vegetables until they are dry and done, for like 4-5 minutes.
Serve warm

Good day
Sarah
