Black Eyed Peas + Green Beans Stir fry

Black Eyed peas + Green beans Thoran
I am really enjoying the wind blowing leaves and the chill in the air . Too lazy to cook , I spend my time slouching in the couch, in a snuggly wrap with some exciting books,( as of now Stieg Larsson). How about you guys?.........
Coming to today's post,there is nothing fancy going on with the recipe here. Its just one yummy combo that was born out of N's love for thoran. But this is highly rich in protein , so give it a go if you care a bit about your diet ;). Once upon a time when i was on SBD( South Beach Diet) i used to take this every day , with a pinch of grated coconut just to modify the plain taste of peas and beans.
Black Eyed peas + Green beans Thoran
Ingredients:-
Black eyed Peas - 1/2 cup
Green beans - 250 gm
Small onion chopped - 1/4 cup
Grated coconut - 2 table spoon
Green chili chopped - 2
Crushed garlic - 2 cloves
Curry leaves - handful
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Oil

Method:-
Clean and soak Black eyed peas overnight. Cook it with salt till it is tender.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they pop up add chopped small onion and curry leaves and saute till they are soft. 
Add crushed garlic and green chili and fry a minute or two.
Add chopped green beans and toss it well. Sprinkle 2-3 table spoons of water and cook it covered for 5-7 minutes. 
Add grated coconut and cooked Black eyed peas and cook it covered for another 5 minutes.
Uncover it and saute till it is dry. Serve warm.

Notes:-
  • Add a pinch of turmeric if you like
  • If you are using canned Black eyed peas , drain and wash the peas and add it 
  • For a gingery kick to your stir fry add a tea spoon of chopped ginger in the beginning.

Oooh another fan of the girl with the Dragon tattoo??? I just received it, and I am trying to finish two other books I already "committed" to before I can feast on Steig. This thoran brings back so many memories. When i moved to NJ years ago (and had no clue how to cook) this was one combo my sis-in-law ALWAYS made and so I started copying her, and we had it so much day in and day out we got bored of it! Its been YEARS since I tried this combo again, i should bring it out again =)
