Carrot-Long Beans Spicy Thoran

This is a must have dish when my mom cooks Kerala vegetarian dishes, we love this dish so much because it's spicy and tasty. Very simple and easy to make and complements sambar, sothy or moru curry or with just plain rice. Let us look at the recipe;


1 carrot diced small
10 long beans cut small
1/4 cup of grated coconut
1/2 tsp of turmeric powder
4 dry red chili
1 onion sliced
1 tsp mustard seed
1 sprig curry leaves
1 tbsp of oil
1/4 cup of water
Salt to taste

Blend coarsely onion, dry red chili and coconut with water and keep aside.

In a pan, heat oil add mustard seed and curry leaves, let it crackle then add in carrot and long beans. Stir in turmeric powder and salt until everything is well incorporated. 

Let the carrot cook for about 5 minutes and pour in blended ingredients and let is simmer. The liquid should be totally evaporated and the thoran will be dry.

Now our Thoran is ready to be served, do try and let me know how it turned out.
