Carrot N French Beans Thoran

Simple side dish prepared with carrots, french beans, soaked moongdal and spiced with green chillies...this thoran/poriyal is one of our favourite side dish, which goes perfectly as side dish with sambhar, rasam and curd rice..its just take few minutes to cook and very healthy thoran too, i do the same with carrots, cabbage,french beans, zucchinis,cauliflower etc.. the choice of veggies to make out this simple dish depends on the veggies i can get from the farmer's markets, this is our usual side dish i do atleast twice a week for our lunch...sometimes i used to add cooked rice and turned this side dish as rice dish by just adding garam masala and pepper powder...This is how i feed my family members whenever they get bored of usual dishes..This healthy and colourful thoran goes to  Sanghi's FIL-Carrots ....

1cup Carrot pieces
1+1/2cups French beans pieces
1no Onion (chopped)
3nos Green Chillies (slit opened)
1/4tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Urad dal
1/4cup Moongdal (soaked for half an hour)
