Green Beans Thoran -Kerala Cuisine

Thoran or is a typical Kerala recipe which is made of vegetables and coconut. It is a beautiful comforting dish with coconut, garlic and green chilly. Thoran is a coconut based vegetable Keralite dish and can be also made with carrots, cabbage, green tomatoes or spinach. . It is a common accompaniment for rice which is very nourishing and tasty. 


Beans are steam cooked and mixed with grated coconut with very little spices. This popular and common dish, Kerala Beans stir fry is perfect with some steamed rice and phulka (flat bread). Amazingly light, and loaded with nutrition, this dish is rich in iron and antioxidants.

Serving suggestions
Plain rice
Drumstick sambar
Bhindi fry
Mushroom curry

Never add water while making any thoran. The vegetables contain water which is more than enough for cooking.
More Coconut and coconut oil will give the dish more taste. I have used a little less coconut considering my family.
Curry leaves can be added at last for the aroma of the thoran.
