I usually make poriyals to serve as a side dish as they are quick, simple and easy to make and serve as a great healthy side dish. I have already shared the recipes of Beetroot poriyal, Cabbage poriyal, Vendakkai poriyal and Beans poriyal and will be posting more poriyal recipes soon.

For the unacquainted, Poriyal Is a South Indian dry vegetable preparation that can be made from different veggies like carrot, cabbage, okra, beetroot, potato etc.

To make poriyal, the veggies are first sauteed in spices, steamed and then topped with freshly grated coconut. If you love coconut-based recipes then you must give poriyal a try. The best thing about poriyal recipes is that you get the full flavor of the veggies as they are not very heavily spiced.

You can serve beetroot carrot poriyal with rotis. Or you can also serve them as a side dish with sambar rice or rasam rice combo. I sometimes serve them with dal rice combo also and for me, it goes great.
