Green Bean, Corn, and Coconut Stir-Fry (Thoren)

I grew up on green beans thoren, and while I’ll never tire of its crunchy deliciousness, I think adding corn makes it even better. And even though people don’t often associate stir-fries with Indian cooking, this dish is a favorite in Kerala. It’s a combination of diced vegetables and coconut, but the key is moistening the coconut so it can soak up the ground spices first. This recipe is part of our menu for Sadhya, a South Indian feast....
