Method
Wash the carrot, broccoli and chop them into small pieces. 
Chop the onions and green chilly as well.
Cook the dal, with out mashing it and keep it aside. (You can reserve some dal while making sambar/ plain dal)
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and let them pop-up. Then add hing followed by urad dal. Let the dal turn golden in color, then add in the onion-green chilly.
Cook till the onions turn shiny, add the veggies, salt and sugar, sprinkle little water and cook for 3 minutes and medium heat.
Open the pan, add the cooked dal and coconut.
Mix everything, reduce the heat and cook for 2 more minutes.
Delicious broccoli-carrot poriyal is ready to serve.
Broccoli should not be cooked for long time, the maximum cooking time is 8 minutes. Since we are chopping broccoli and carrot into small pieces, they get cooked within the mentioned time. This stir fry is packed with nutrients from the veggies and dal. It tastes good with rice as well as roti.
We had it with coconut rice, boiled egg, paruppu cutney/thogayal.
