Broccoli chatpata

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.
