Tricolor Poriyal

This is a mild and tasty side dish made with carrot, beans and cauliflower. Goes well with any kuzhambu. This was served as a side dish in a marriage and my mother gave me this recipe. A special thanks to my mom for giving a delicious recipe.


Cauliflower florets – 1 cup (small florets)
Beans – 1 cup thinly chopped
Carrot – 1/2 cup thinly chopped
Onion – 1/2cup chopped
Green chilly – 1
Coconut powder – ½ cup
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Urad dal – 1 tsp


• Steam the cut vegetables (cauliflower, carrot and beans) for 5 minutes

• Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds to splutter

• Then add Urad dal and allow to brown a little

• Then add onion and green chilly and sauté for a while

• Add the steamed vegetables, salt and coconut powder and let it stand for 2 minutes

• Garnish with coriander leaves
