Broccoli is a healthy vegetable and considered to be the dieter’s delight! It is rich in dietary fiber, vitamins particularly C, A, and B6 as well as minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium and potassium. Broccoli is not often used in traditional Indian cuisine. It can be added to other vegetables in a salad. However, here is an easy and tasty broccoli recipe that goes well both with pasta and chapatti. Try this out…
Broccoli – medium sized, 1 no
Onion – large, 1 no, sliced
Kalonji or nigella seeds – 1 teaspoon
Cooking oil – 1 tablespoon
Salt – to taste
Freshly ground pepper – 1 teaspoon (adjust to taste)
|Broccoli Stir fry|
Method: Separate the broccoli florets and wash well in running water. Drain and keep aside. Heat oil in a frying pan; when ready, add nigella seeds. Fry for 30 seconds. Add the sliced onions and fry till they turn light brown in color. Add the broccoli florets and salt. Mix well. Cook on low flame till the vegetable starts to soften. Now add the ground pepper and stir fry for 1 minute. Remove from fire and serve hot as an accompaniment to pasta or chapatti.
