Wash the carrots and beans thoroughly. Peel the skin of the carrots and chop them finely. Cut off the edges of the beans and cut them to fine pieces.

Heat oil in a kadai, splutter mustard seeds, now add cumin seeds, urad dal, dry red chillies, curry leaves and fry until the dal changes color.

Add the onions and saute until translucent.

Now add the chopped carrots and beans and saute for about 2 -3 minutes in medium flame.

Add the sambar powder, turmeric powder, salt and mix well. 

Sprinkle about ¼ cup of water, cover and cook the vegetables for approximately 4 -5 minutes.

The vegetables are perfectly cooked.

Finally add the grated coconut and mix well. Now switch off the stove.

Healthy and delicious carrot beans poriyal is ready.

  • Addition of onions is optional, I add onions when I have some chopped onions left after cooking rest of my dishes.
  • I have added sambar powder, you can replace it with 3 -4 green chillies.
  • If you are packing the vegetables for lunch, stir the vegetables with coconut for about 2 minutes and then switch off the stove.
