Achinga payaruthoran/long yard beans stir fry-kerala style.

Yard Long beans+curry leaves+green chilli+dryied chilli+shallot+grated coconut..all getting ready for kerala "payaru thoranan@long beans fry"


Yard long beans- 1/2 kg or 20 long ones.
Onion - 1big or
Green chillies- 3
Curry leaves- 10 leaflets.
Garlic= 3 cloves
Coconut Grated- 3-5 tbspns.
Dried red chilli=one
Mustard, jeera (cumin seeds- 1 tspn (for tempering)
Oil- 2 tbspns.
Termaric powder =1/4 tsp.
Salt to taste.

Prepare coconut mixture first:

Crush shallots, garlic and green chili,portion of jeera,turmeric,salt and coconut together. We need to combine them together as a crushed mixture.

1.Cut long yard beans into small pieces as shown in picture.
2.Add coconut mixture to the beans. Mix well with your hands. (Set aside for 10mnts-not necessary)
2.In a pan, heat oil. Then add mustard seeds. When they begin to crackle,add few cumin seeds,curry leaves and dried red chilli saute for 2 minutes.
3.Add the beans mixture to it mix well.
4. stir well for one minute.
5.Sprinkle just a hand full of water on top of it and stir again then keep everything to center cover it with a lid and cook in low flame for another 5mnts or till the beans became tender. Check in-between and mix well. Once it is dry remove from heat.
(My mom"s kottayam method)

P.S :Another option is cooking the beans alone first with 1/4 water and add the coconut mixture at the end, then you will get a more raw taste of coconut,shallot and chilli mixture.

(my mother in laws-palakad method-I have also seen her using urududal in step two).

Enjoy the dish...and let me know if you like it..hey womans day greetings
