Broccoli & Carrot Poriyal | Thoran | Stir Fry

From last one year plus broccoli has been so regular at home thanks to vegetable shopping at done  mostly in supermarkets! Most of the time I make Broccoli Soup or Stir Fry or some time I venture into another recipes provided I have the mood.  This is a very simple, quick and delicious recipe which can be done in just 10 minutes including chopping if you are using a chopper.  I didn’t add coconut as I was short of it but it tasted delicious, am sure coconut will add wonderful flavour to the dish.   Try this combination to make your broccoli stir fry more interesting.
