The vegetable"brocolli' evokes a negative response from almost all the food lovers. Inspite of the health benefits it provides we are unwilling to give the bland tasting vegetable a chance. I was a brocolli hater too, until I tasted this recipe. My aunt told me this recipe over the phone and asked me to try it out.. I did it reluctantly and was pleasantly surprised. The bland brocolli is combined with spices and steamed to perfection . Give it a try ... if you love it you will reap all the health benifits it has to offer.
- Broccoli--1 medium bulb ( washed and cut into medium sized pieces)
- Groundnut powder--2 Tablespoons
- Red dried chillis--4-5
- Chat masala--1/4 teaspoon
- Jeera--1/4 taspoon
- Turmeric powder--1/4 teaspoon
Grind the garlic and dried red chillies in a mixer to a fine paste. Heat oil in a pan and some jeera and turmeric powder. Now add the Garlic-chilli paste to it. Add the cut broccolli pieces and saute for some time. Add salt,chat masala and cover it for a brief time till the broccolli becomes soft but not mushy. Add peanut powder and mix well. Season it will lime juice and enjoy when hot.
Note--Dont overcook the broccoli as it tends to become mushy. It should take less than 5 minutes for the broccolli to cook.
