Greens beans and soya granules stir fry/poriyal

This is a different take on the regular green beans stir fry or poriyal. It goes well with rice and chapathis.

1. Green beans, cleaned and chopped into small pieces, 1 cup.
2. Soya granules, 1 cup.
3. Onion, medium size, 1, sliced thinly.
4. Ginger-garlic paste, 1 teaspoon.
5. Chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon.
6. Coriander powder, 1 teaspoon.
7. Turmeric powder, a pinch.
8. Mustard seeds, 1/2 teaspoon.
9. Urad dhal, 1/2 teaspoon.
10. Salt as per taste.
11.  Curry leaves, 4-5.
12.  Chopped cilantro for garnishing.

Soak the soya granules in hot water for 5 minutes. Drain them out from the water, wash them, and squeeze out the excess water from the granules are keep aside. If soya granules are not available, soya nuggets or meal maker can be used and they can be ground coarsely. Heat a pan with a tablespoon of oil. When the oil turns hot, add the mustard seeds and let it splutter. Then add the urad dhal and fry for a few seconds. Add the sliced onions and curry leaf now and saute for a couple of minutes until the onions turn translucent. Then add the chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt, and ginger-garlic paste and fry for a minute until the ginger-garlic paste and the powders lose their raw smell. Now add the chopped green beans and soya granules, mix everything well, and cook closed for 10 minutes under low flame until the beans are cooked. If needs water can be sprinkled in between to prevent the beans from burning. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with rice or chapathis.
