Achinga-Vanpayar Thoran/Red Chori-Yard Long Beans Stir fry(Sabzi)

  1. Vanpayar/Red Moong Dal/Red Chori - 1/2 cup
  2. Achinga Payar/Yard Long Beans - 1 small bunch(around 1/2 lb, oru kettu)
  3. Onion - 1 finely chopped
  4. Green chilly slit into halves - 4
  5. Curry leaves a sprig or more
  6. Dry Red chilly - 2(broken into halves)
  7. Turmeric powder - 3/4 tsp 
  8. Mustard seeds - 1tsp
  9. Grated Coconut - 1/4 cup
  10. Coconut oil - 2tbsp(preferably or oil of ur choice)
  11. Water  around 1/2 cup to cook the vanpayar/red moong
  12. Salt to taste.
Preparation Method:-
  • Wash and drain the red moong and soak for 30 minutes. Cook it till tender by adding  1/2 tsp salt (give it a whistle or two in pressure cooker or cook it covered till soft -don't overcook). Set aside.
  • Wash and pat dry the yard beans, chop them and set aside

  • Heat up a kadai or non-stick pan, pour the oil and crackle mustard seeds. Add in curry leaves and broken red chilies and saute for few seconds.
  • Add in the onion, green chilies, salt and saute for a minute. Add the chopped yard beans, turmeric powder and saute well to mix everything. 
  • Cover and half cook the yard beans in medium heat without adding water. Stir in between so that they don't stick onto the pan and burn
  • Add the cooked red moong/red chori and stir well to mix everything. Cover and cook for some more time say five-seven minutes till yard bean and red moong blend well and is cooked properly. Check for the salt and adjust accordingly.
  • Add the grated coconut and more curry leaves and saute to mix well. 
  • Switch off the flame and serve warm with Rice/Roti. Enjoy!!!!!!
