Thorans (from Kerala) and Poriyals (from Tamil Nadu) are delightfully delicious, simple and quick dishes from the South of India that can form part of a meal, or can be eaten just with rice for a snack or simple meal. These dishes made from finely chopped vegetables are simply spiced, usually sweetened a little with coconut, and allow the flavour of the vegetables to shine. Bhurji from Andra Pradesh is also similar.
