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.
Heat coconut oil in a pot on medium. Fry mustard seeds for a few minutes then add curry leaves.
Add shallots and sauté for 1 minute. Add chile and grated carrot. Stir well and sauté for 1 minute more.
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.
