Beans Poriyal

Hello friends, this is my favorite recipe with green beans. It is very easy, simple and nutritious!

Green beans
Idly/Dosai powder (podi)
Mustard seeds
Urad dal

1. Heat little water just enough to boil the beans with salt (so that you do not loose the nutrition in excess water. If you have just enough water, once the beans boils you will not have to drain any water at all) and keep aside
2. Heat oil in a pan splutter mustard seeds and urad dal, add the beans and idly podi and saute. Healthy poriyal is ready!!

Variations: You can add cooked toor dal or moong dal or coconut in place of idly podi. Measurements of the beans and podi can be varied according to your taste and requirements.
