Beans mushroom poriyal / stir fry is very easy to make side dish with very simple ingredients. This dish is a combination of green beans and mushroom. Both are rich in protein and other vital nutrients which are very good for our health. Here I added coconut milk to the veggies which adds a nice taste to the dish.
