One of the simplest and colorful side dish which goes well with rice and or chapathis.
I have used baby carrots here instead of regular carrots. As we get nice small rounds and also they taste really good as they are really tender and sweet.
Take green beans and carrot in a microwavable bowl, wash and sprinkle little water and cook for 8 - 10 minutes. Also can cook on stove top until they soft but not mushy.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, urad dhal, cumin seeds and curry leaves. Wait till they splutter up and add chopped onions. Fry till light brown. Next add the powders and the cooked vegetables. Saute well also add salt. Fry together for 2 - 3 minutes. Finally add grated coconut and mix again saute for a minute.
