Achinga Payar Kaya Mezhukkupuratti/ Raw plantain and Yard bean Stir-fry

Achinga Payar Kaya Mezhukkupuratti

Achinga payar or yard beans and raw plantain  is a favorite combo in our house. Some time I make it as thoran or this simple spicy stir fry. Tender yard beans can be broken with your hands. If they are not just peel off the shell and take the tiny beans inside. Serve as a side dish for rice.

Achinga payar- cut into  one inch piece- a small bunch
( 2-3 cups)
Raw plantain- 1 medium (1 inch long thin pieces)
Shallots- 8-10
Dry red chilly-3 
Turmeric- 1/4 tsp
Garlic- 2 cloves
Curry leaves- a few
Coconut oil- 1 tbs
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
salt to taste

Cook achinga payar/yard beans and plantain along with turmeric powder, salt and a few drops of coconut oil.Add about 3/4 cup of water and cook till the vegetables are soft.
Using a stone pounder or a kitchen chopper crush garlic,shallots,curry leaves and dry red chilly into a course mixture and keep aside.
Heat coconut oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When it splutters add the crushed shallot mixture and saute till it turns golden brown. Add in the cooked vegetables and stir fry in medium high heat for two to three minutes.  Serve as a side dish for rice.
