Poriyal is a generic term used to refer to dry curries in tamilnadu, and is an indispensable part of the tamilian thali meal. Such curries can be made plain, with a simple seasoning of mustard and urad dal, or with a more elaborate flavouring of powdered spices.
- Heat the oil in a kadhai and add the mustard seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the cumin seeds, urad dal, chana dal, red chillies, asafoetida and curry leaves, mix well and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds, while stirring continuously.
- Add the french beans, ½ cup of water and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes till they are cooked, while stirring once in between.
- Add the coconut, mix gently and cook for another 2 minutes. Serve hot.
