karamani Mezhukkuvaratti

Mezhukkuvaratti is a common side dish people make in most of the Palghat Iyer family. This is nothing but just a stir fry and requires very less amount of seasoning and very less amount of ingredients. I made Karamani mezhukkuvaratti last week.  Here is how I made.

  1. Karamani/Long Beans - 2 cups (cut it one inch sized)
  2. Red chillies - 1 or 2
  3. Coconut Oil - 2 tsp
  4. Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
  5. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Pre heat oil in a wide pan, splutter mustard seeds, fry urad dhall and red chilli till golden brown. Now add the long beans, required amount of water, salt and turmeric powder and let it cook. Keep the flame low and fry it for 5 to 7 minutes.  Do not burn the veggie.  It tastes very good with sambar/vathakozhambu. My patti used to eat it along with just ghee rice. We can also make mezhukkuvaratti with chenakezhangu.
