BEANS MEZHUGUPURATTI

This is a Kerala recipe. The vegetable glitters in oil and so the name. This is an easy-to-do recipe. The poriyal which we used to make in Tamil Nadu without coconut is typical to this. But, here coconut oil is used. You can use any vegetable of your choice.

Beans - 1/2 kg.
Coconut oil - 2 tablespoons
Green chillies - 4
OR Red chillies -2

Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp.
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp.
Urad dhal - 1 tsp. (optional)
Salt - as per taste

METHOD:

Chop beans in to small pieces. Boil it in water alongwith salt and turmeric powder, drain the water completely and keep it aside.

In a pan, heat coconut oil , add mustard seeds, urad dhal &chillies and when it splutters, simmer the stove, add the cooked vegetable and saute well. You can also use chilli powder instead of chillies.
