Stir-Fried Vegetables with Coconut and Peanuts / Mixed Vegatable Thoran

If you have some left over vegetables lying around,Go and pick everything to make this lovely dish...This is also called as Thoran here...

But this dish is quite different, It is a Thoran with Aarthi’s Twist in it...The twist comes from peanuts and frying the coconuts..

This dish looks colourful which I always love...The other special thing is, It can go as a great filling for roti rolls...So hope you loved it...

So here you go for the recipe with step by step pictures...


Carrot-2 large chopped
Beans-20 chopped
Coconut-3 tblspn grated
Peanuts-3 tblspn roughly crushed
Mustard seeds / Kaduku-1 tsp
Cumin seeds / Jeerakam-1 tsp
Urad dal / Ulundu parupu-1 tsp
Channa dal / Kadala parupu-1 tsp
Asafoetida / Hing / Kaya podi- ¼ tsp
Oil-1 tblspn
Curry leaves-1 spring
Salt to taste


Microwave chopped carrot and beans by adding some water and salt for 5 mins..

Heat oil in a kadai,add in mustard seeds, channa dal, urad dal, cumin seeds, peanuts, hing, curry leaves and mix well..

Now add in coconut and mix for 1 min..

Now add in cooked veggies and mix well...Add a splash of water and mix well..

Cover and cook for 10 mins on a very slow flame.By which time the veggies must have absorbed all flavours and cooked completely..

Serve this with rice and dal..

Take all your ingrediants..Sorry
I have wrongly tagged curry leaves as beans...OOPS!!!
Chop up your vegetables
Take that in a microwave safe bowl,add some salt and some water...Cover and cook...
Till perfectly cooked
Crackle some mustard seeds in oil

and your curry leaves
throw in your coconut...
mix well...
add in cooked vegetables...
mix well..
add a splash of water...Cover and simmer for a while
all done...
Look at the colours
