Method :

Clean and cut broccoli into big chunks (just the florets along with the tender stem, refer picture)

Heat a non stick pan add in vegetable oil and heat the oil for 1 minute add in cumin seeds and turmeric powder.  Let this heat for 30 seconds.

Next add in chopped garlic,ginger and green chillies ( chillies which I used is not spicy one so I added 6 chillies, you can increase or decrease accordingly)
Saute for 1 minute in medium flame.

Add in chopped onion and saute for once and let it cook for 1 minute.

Add in chopped capsicums, salt and sugar and saute once and let it cook for a minute.

Add in chopped tomatoes and coriander stem part and mix it well and let it cook for 3-4 minutes , stir once in a while.

After tomatoes half cooked, add in broccoli and mix it very well and let it cook for about 10 minutes in a medium flame ( Do mix/saute in between)

Don't cover it with lid. Liquids from the vegetables needs to evaporate.

After 10 minutes add in dessicated coconut, coconut oil, garam masala and coriander leaves. ( Check the spice level, if you want you can add salt and garam masala) mix it very well and cook this in a high flame for about 2-3minutes.

Once you notice the charred bottom, switch off the flame and add a drop of fresh lemon juice.(just a drop) 

Mix everything nicely and serve with chapathi or rice!!
