Carrot Beans Vepudu-Vegetable Stir Fry

A classic South Indian style vegetable stir fry that adorns a traditional thali is Carrot beans vepudu aka poriyal aka thoran aka stir fry. :) Healthy, easy to make with perfect combination of flavors. Curry leaves, hing and fresh coconut are my top most ‘essential’ ingredients whenever I venture out to make this vegetable fry recipe. Goes well with rice and sambar.
