Green Bean Thoran

Green Bean Thoran

Thoran is a vegetable and grated coconut curry that’s popular along the Spice Coast in the south of India. Pretty much any firm vegetable works with this recipe. 


  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp brown mustard seed
  • 10 curry leaves
  • 5 sliced shallots
  • ½ tsp chile flakes, ground
  • 3 cups green beans, grated
  • 1 cup fresh coconut, grated
  • ½ tsp turmeric, ground
  • Salt to taste


  1. 1

    Heat coconut oil in a pot on medium. Fry mustard seeds for a few minutes then add curry leaves.

  2. 2

    Add shallots and sauté for 1 minute. Add chile and grated carrot. Stir well and sauté for 1 minute more.

  3. 3

    Incorporate grated coconut, turmeric, and salt. Cover and simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes, until the beans are barely cooked and still crunchy.
