Carrot & Broccoli rabe stir fry /Carrot-broccoli keerai thoran

This recipe is a simple stir fry having 2 healthy ingredients. Carrot which is an excellent source of Vitamin A,  and broccoli rabe, rich in iron..thus the combo is sure good for health. :)

I got a fresh broccoli during our last visit to Farmers market here. The other day I was planning to make Broccoli paruppu usili, and didn't want to waste the greens. Saw the carrots, and the lovely colour combo of orange & green strike my mind. We had a nice meal consisting of rice - adzuki beans bottle gourd kuzhambu-broccoli usili and carrot-broccoli rabe thoran.

Chopped Carrot -1/2cup
Chopped broccoli rabe -1/4cup
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Urad dal-1teaspoon
Few curry leaves
Oil(Preferably coconut oil)
To grind
Grated coconut-2tablespoons
Green chilly-1
Cumin seeds-1/2teaspoon f

Grind the coconut-green chilly-cumin seeds (with very little water) into a coarse mixture.
Heat some oil in a pan, make the tempering with mustard seeds-urad dal-curry leaves.
Then add in the carrot, sprinkle little water and cook it.
Add the broccoli rabe and the coconut mixture when the carrots are 3/4th done.
Add enough salt and mix everything well. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Healthy n delicious stir fry is ready. It goes well with rice n roti.
