Broccoli Stir fry | Broccoli Mezhukuparetti

Broccoli has been always another veggie which I have started using in my kitchen very late after reaching here.But once I started,loved this so much that no week's menu  is complete without these green florets.They look very similar to cauliflower and tastes too the same.And so a simple stir fry to enjoy with your rice or other staples.Do give this a try,friends !!


Ingredients
broccoli florets 1lb (500gm)
onion 1 large sliced
garlic cloves 3-4 sliced
fennel seeds 1 tsp
chilly powder 1 tsp
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
salt
oil 2-3 tbsp
curry leaves


Method
-Wash & cut the broccoli florets in medium bites.Keep aside.
-Heat oil in a pan,crackle fennel seeds.
-Saute onions until slightly browned all sides,keep stirring.Add in the curry leaves,Add salt & turmeric powder.
-Add the broccoli and chilly powder.Sprinkle few drops of water and cover.
-Cook covered for 10-12 minutes on medium heat,in between give a quick toss,adjust salt.Cover again(prevents from sticking the veggie at the bottom of the pan).
-Uncover and keep sauting till the florets attain a slight brownish color on medium high flame and is shrinked.Serve warm with rice !!


Servings ~ 2 adults

NOTES
* The quantity reduces considerably after cooking.
* The florets can also be baked at 400 degrees F for 10-12 mins.Spread them on a foil lined tray with oil sprayed.

Delicious and healthy stir fry..
I sometimes make it this way too, the only change will be instead of garlic cloves, I would use ginger- garlic paste.

Thanks for this post! I have a particular aversion towards broccoli but this post gave me the guts to try. Besides, it's healthy for our blood sugar, too.

Best,
