பீன்ஸ் பொரியல்.
This is Mrs.Asiya Omar’s recipe. This recipe fascinated me very much as it has different ingredients and a different method. I was tempted to try it and had wonderful and very tasty result!
Though this recipe seems a very simple one, the taste is wonderful!
Thank you Asiya!
I have slightly changed the ground paste-added 1 arc curry leaves to grind instead of using it for tempering as she had written.


Beans- 250 gm
Very thinly sliced Onion- half cup
Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
Black gram- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder- half sp
Oil- 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Chopped coriander-2 tbsp

Grind coarsely the following ingredients:
Big garlic flake-1, shredded coconut-3 tbsp, curry leaves- 1 arc, red chillies-2, cumin seeds- half sp
First powder the red chillies and the cumin seeds. Then add the remaining ingredients and grind coarsely for a second.


Heat a pan and pour the oil.
Add the mustard seeds and when they splutter add the black gram and fry for a second.
Add the onions and fry them to golden brown.
Add the beans which are slit and cut in to 1 cm length with turmeric powder.
Sprinkle little water and salt and cook on medium fire.
When they are 3/4th done, add the ground paste and mix well.
Cook until the vegetables are done.
Sprinkle coriander and mix well.
