Chenathandu Cherupayar Thoran Recipe – Kerala Recipe – Onam Sadya Recipe

I got this recipe from my mother. As she plants most of the vegetables in her garden, we need not have to go to market for vegetables. Luckily, I do have a little kitchen garden which gives me a proud feeling. Almost all parts of the elephant yam plant is edible. Even the leaves can be used to prepare stir fry. I have used the stem of the plant to make the thoran / stir fry.

I have added cherupayar (ചെറുപയർ, green gram, moong dal) and urad dal (uzhunnu parippu, ഉഴുന്ന് പരിപ്പ്) which enhance the taste. It had high fibre content. With its high fiber and nutrient content, it offers a number of health benefits.
