Beans Poriyal

This is a simple and hearty beans poriyal made with beans, dal and coconut. It is very easy to prepare and goes well with rice and curry. It tastes great especially with sambar and rice.

Ingredients
Beans - 1/2 lbs / 250 gms
Onion - 1/2 chopped
Moong dal / Paasiparuppu - 2 tablespoons
Oil - 1 spoon
Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
Urad dhal - 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Grated coconut - 2 tablespoons

Directions
Wash and soak the moong dal for a while.

Wash and slice the bean thinly as needed.

In a saucepan, heat the oil and do the tempering using oil, mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves. Add the chopped onions and saute for a while until they turns translucent. Add the moong dal and beans and saute for a while. Add the turmeric powder, chilli powder and a few spoons of water. Cover and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes until the beans get completely cooked. Add salt to taste and the grated coconut and mix well. Cook for about 1 more minute and remove from heat.
