‘Thoran’ is a traditional vegetable preparation that is popular in Kerala. It is a dry subzi that can be prepared with many different veggies.

In this recipe, we have used a colourful combination of French beans and carrot. First, the veggies are sautéed with onions and an aromatic tempering of seeds and red chillies, and then it is perked up with a tasty mixture of coconut and other ingredients, which not only improves the taste but also gives a nice mouth-feel to the French Beans and Carrot Thoran.

Onions may or may not be added, but they give a nice crunch and strong flavour if added. Enjoy the thoran with steaming hot Rice and Sambhar or Rasam .
