Murungaillai | Carrot |Beans Poriyal!

I had Murungaillai brought from Little India, the quantity was more. So thought of trying it with veggie. Murungaillai/ Carrot/Beans Curry is a simple and healthy curry. I have already posted Beans Curry here, this is slightly different version and tasted good.

This was also for Republic Day!

This bowl is gift given by my best friend Rekha. Thanks a lot dear.

Carrot - 2 nos(Big)
Beans -  20 nos

Murungaillai (Tender) - 1 cup
Onion - 2 nos
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup

Bengal gram - 1 tspn
Mustard - 1 tspn
Asafotida(hing) - 1 pinch
Turmeric - 1/2 tspn

Green chilli - 2nos
Curry leaves - 6 nos

Oil - 2tspns
Salt to taste

Preparation Method
Wash, clean and pat dry veggie.
Chop it into small pieces.

Heat a pan, put oil add mustard once it splutters add asafotida.
Add Bengal gram, curry leaves, green chillies and wait till dal is brown.
Add the chopped onions and saute till its transparant. Add Murungaillai and saute for a min.

Add Carrot and Beans.
Add salt, turmeric and water.
Cook under low flame once its cooked with no water left add coconut.
Mix well and cook for 5mins.

Now its ready to serve.

Its a good combination for steamed rice, chapathi, Sambar, rasam and curd rice.
