Poriyal is nothing but stir fry. Vegetables are steamed and then stir-fried with minimum oil.  This is served as a side dish in most south Indian homes. In Tamilnadu, the simple stir fry is known as poriyal while in Kerala it is known as thoran. Both the poriyal and the thoran use coconut as the flavouring agent. There are some poriyals where onion in used too.

Usually, the vegetables are first steamed. Then it is quickly stir-fried. Green beans, broad beans, beetroot, snake gourd, bottle gourd are some vegetables where poriyal is prepared in this way. You can check out beans poriyal cooked in this way HERE
