Beans poriyal

I have flashed cooked beans by opos many times.Guess the beans poriyal can be made just in minutes.It always turns out very crunchy,greenly and well cooked.Make sure to use the fresh beans.This is basic poriyal recipe.Variations can be done with added diced(cubic sized) carrots, or can be added soaked & coarsely ground dal(usili) which has to be soaked for 15 minutes.I never add coconut to poriyal for daily cooking(only special occasions).Instead of coconut,1/2 tsp of coconut oil can be drizzled.
