Beans-carrot thoran

This is also another thoran from vazhayila. This one does not have the easy mixing of ingredients first in a bowl but I think you can do that like it was done for carrot thoran. Anyway I followed this one to the T.


view original source ! Vazhayila !: Beans-carrot thoran


Beans chopped - 1 cup
Carrot grated - 1/2 cup
Grated coconut - 4 tsp
Small onion chopped - 1
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Green chilies chopped - 2 -3
Ginger chopped - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds 
Curry leaves 


Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds.When they pop up add chopped small onions, green chiles, ginger and curry leaves . Saute well till they are soft.
Add turmeric powder and mix it well. Stir in the chopped carrots and green beans and toss it well.Sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of water and simmer it covered for 7-9 minutes , until they are cooked and the raw smell disappears, stirring occassionally so that it wont stick to the bottom.Stir in the grated coconut and cook it uncovered for another 5 minutes .
Serve warm.
