Poriyal is a traditional South Indian preparation made almost everyday with one or the other vegetable. Sometimes combination of vegetables makes it even more interesting and tasty. One such  commonly made combination is beans carrot poriyal. This not only tastes good but also looks attractive with a bright contrast of green and orange.

Personally I make this beans carrot poriyal whenever I want to add carrot to my diet because few of my family members do not like plain carrot poriyal. Some people add equal quantities of beans and carrot. However I like to add more green beans than carrot to suit to my family taste. Do give tis a try.
