Carrot and Beans Curry/Poriyal

Carrot and beans curry(as we call it)poriyal is one of our favourites.I like it for its colour and taste.My mother used to make only beans curry with sambar and other spicy gravies but one of my friend told me to combine carrots along with it which is more healthy,tasty and colorful.It goes well with sambar and vathakuzhambu.I like to add  half a spoon of sugar when the gravy is a little spicy.
