Beans Carrot Thoran / No Onion No Garlic Kerala Stir Fry Veg

With Onam festival just around the corner, I thought of sharing “Thoran” Recipe from Kerala Cuisine. The Beans Carrot Thoran is a No Onion No Garlic Kerala Style Stir Fry Veg which is served for Sadya Meals. Delicious, Easy to Make, Vegetarian, Gluten Free and Vegan, this humble Sabzi is perfect for your everyday meals too.

Beans Carrot Thoran is made regularly at our home as it makes a good accompaniment to rotis or rice in lunch box. Thoran is very similar to Poriyal. For Thoran, we mince grated coconut with some cumin and green chillies whereas for Poriyal it is usually only grated coconut.

Some Thoran Recipes add shallots or small onions but since we are Tam Brahms, we skip the onions. In fact, for all festive occasions, we refrain from cooking and eating Onions or garlic at home.

Some Thoran Recipes that you can make at home for Onam Sadya are Beetroot Thoran and Achinga Payar Thoran (Long Beans Thoran)

Thoran has to be absolutely cooked in coconut oil for the authentic Kerala taste. Do not skip that. To accelerate the process of cooking, I chop both the vegetables and pressure cook them. It saves both time and energy.

I like to combine carrots with french beans as they lend their sweetness and the contrasting colours are soothing to your eyes. Sadya is all about using seasonal ingredients and a variety of vegetables on the banana leaf.

The Beans Carrot Thoran tastes best with Mor Kuzhambu (Ash Gourd cooked in Buttermilk and Coconut Gravy) and even Rasam. I also pack this with rotis for my husband’s lunch box at work.

Step by Step Recipe to Make Beans Carrot Thoran at home

  • Wash, string the french beans and peel the skin of the carrot, trim the ends and finely chop them both.
  • Add the vegetables to a vessel (for pressure cooking) along with salt to taste and turmeric powder. Cover the vessel with a lid and pressure cook for 3 whistles. Do not add water.
  • In the meanwhile, grind 1/2 a cup of grated coconut with 1/2 tsp of Jeera or cumin seeds and 2 green chillies. Keep this aside.
  • Once the carrot and beans have cooked, heat a kadhai, add 1 tbsp coconut oil.
  • Add mustard seeds, urad dal and whole red chillies. Allow the mustard to crackle
  • Add the cooked carrot and beans, some curry leaves and cook until the moisture has evaporated.
  • Add the minced coconut mixture to the stir fry and mix everything well.
  • Switch off the flame and serve immediately or pack in tiffin (after cooling).
