Beans and Carrot Thoran / Beans and carrot stir fry

 

January is a depressing month dont u think so ? After all the christmas and Newyear bash January is so boring.. There is nothing much to look forward expect the much hyped valentines day ! I have already started to look forward to two things to keep me going ...one is the  U.K bloggers meet happening in London in 6 weeks time, meeting  friends from Virtual world is really something exciting ! If your are a blogger from U.K and havent heard about this meet before please find the details here, well the other thing is the  wait for Spring...I have already started looking for any signs of Spring. I cant wait to open my windows , hear the birds chirping and enjoy  some daylight !
Coming to today's recipe..its just a simple thoran which I always prepare ,the carrot and beans works well together and we all love this and the great thing about this thoran is I dont add any redchilly powder or greenchillies in this thoran  and it tastes better without chillies so lil A enjoys it too !
