Simple Carrot – Beans Stir Fry

This is a simple wholesome curry that can be made quickly. This is perfect for those lazy days when you don’t want to cook elaborate meals.

  • 1 cup chopped Carrot
  • 1 cup chopped green Beans(French Beans)
  • ¼ cup chopped Onions
  • ¼ cup grated Coconut (fresh or dry) (I used dry)
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • A pinch of Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp Red Chili Powder (Adjust according to taste)
  • Salt

For Seasoning/Tempering:
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Bengal Gram (Pachi Senagapappu, Chana Dal)
  • ¼ tsp Black Gram (Minappappu, Urad Dal)
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • 1 or 2 dry Red Chilies

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they pop, add cumin seeds + black gram + Bengal gram + curry leaves + red chili and sauté well until the dals change color.

Now add onions + carrots + beans + turmeric + chili powder and mix well. Pour some water (approx. 1 cup), add salt and mix well. Cover and allow the mixture to cook well and all the water gets absorbed.

Allow the curry to become dry by keeping the pan on low flame with no cover. Keep stirring now and then.

When the curry becomes dry and cooked, add grated coconut and mix well. Allow the coconut to blend well with the curry.

Finally turn off the flame and transfer the curry to a serving bowl. Enjoy the simple but yummy curry with chapathis or rice.
