Beans Cheruparippu Thoran


Beans Cheruparippu Thoran/Beans and Moong Dal Thoran

This is a delicious and healthy side dish for rice. It is stir fried beans with cheruparippu/moong dal and coconut.

Ingredients
Beans chopped- 2 1/2 cup
Cheruparippu/Moong dal cooked- 1 cup
Grated coconut- 3/ 4 cup
Onion- 1/2
Green chilly -3
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- a pinch
Cumin - 1/2 tsp
Garlic- 2 pods
Curry leaves- a few
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Coconut oil- 3 tsp


Cook chopped beans and moong dal/cheruparippu separately.
Note; You can dry roast the moong dal till it is slightly golden and gets a nice aroma. This will enhance flavor and also keep it separated. Cook around 1/3 cup of cheruparippu with 1- 1 1/3 cup of water and a pinch of salt and keep aside.Use a wide mouth pot .Cook it till it is soft and still retains its shape and the dal remains separated from each other. Do not pressure cook itor it will get mashed up.

Cook beans along with salt and green chilly and sprinkle some water. Cook covered  in medium flame and saute occasionally. If you feel necessary sprinkle little more water. Allow the beans to get soft and cooked.

In a mixer make a course mixture of coconut, cumin seeds, turmeric, chilly powder and garli.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and when they splutter add curry leaves and chopped onion. Saute till onion changes color. Add the coconut mixture and saute for a minute followed by cooked beans and cooked moong dal. Check for salt and stir fry for two more minutes. Thoran is ready.Serve with rice.
