Beans (Green beans / French beans / string beans) poriyal is good with any South Indian Lunch meal. I have already shared a Beans paruppu usili recipe which is prepared with dal and other spices. Today’s recipe is a simple and flavored stir-fry using beans. What makes this stir-fry special is, we are going to add Kollu podi in this recipe to make it more delicious and aromatic.


I have already shared a multi-purpose kollu podi recipe, which can be served with rice / idly / dosa. It is also great when we add this kollu podi to stir-fry recipes. Today I am sharing beans poriyal using kollu podi. You can also try this recipe with avaraikai or any string vegetables. You can also try this with Flax seed podi instead of kollu podi.
