Achinga Payar Mezhukuperatti/Yard Long Beans Stir Fry

Saute'ed veggies are always an important part of a Kerala meal, it's safe to say it's universally preferred and today I have prepared the same using Achinga Payar. Famously known as Yard long beans, this veggie is a hot hot favourite in Kerala. The flavours incorporated into this dish are green chillies, onions, coconut pieces and coconut oil. Of course, you can play with the flavours as you like, some use different varieties of chillies either green or dry red chillies which alters the flavour slightly.

I have made some this afternoon in a very simple way and I will show you more ways of saute'eing this lovely vegetable in later posts. Hope you enjoy this simple dish. Have a good day.


Yard Long Beans - 30 (approx)
Coconut slices - 1/2 cup (medium size)
Big Onion - 1 1/2 (big)
Garlic - 5 to 6 cloves
Green chillies - 4 to 5 (adjust as per spice tolerance)
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt - to taste


Cut the beans into small strips and keep aside. Take a vessel, add the beans along with all the above ingredients, pour in 2 to 3 sprinkles of water and cover and cook till done. (let all the water evaporate)

Heat oil in a pan, add the cooked beans mixture and stir fry till done.
