The nutrition super star - Broccoli is packed with potassium, magnesium, calcium & Vitamin C & high in fiber...helps maintain a healthy nervous system, regulates blood pressure, fights cancer, improves bone health and prevents osteoporosis and aids digestion. The B6 and folate in it reduces the risk of heart attack/stroke. So many reasons for me to add this lovely green vegetable into my menu every week.
Brocoli - cleaned and cut into small pieces (cut the stem into strips and chop them them small)
Half spoon Cumin seeds
One big potatoe - chopped into cubes and half boiled in salt and water
One white onion - chopped in rings
2Green chillies - finely chopped
Half spoon - turmeric powder, red chilli powder & garam masala
Grated coconut for garnish
Salt to taste
Half spoon freshly ground pepper
Heat oil in a pan, add cumin and let it pop. Add onions, green chillies and broccoli. Cook with lid on low flame for 3 minutes. Do not add water as broccoli will release moisture required to cook. Remove lid, add turmeric powder, red chilli powder and salt. Add the boiled potatoes, stir and combine all. Add garam masala and cook for 3 more minutes. When broccoli becomes soft and rests, the potatoes gets golden ends, garnish with grated coconut and freshly ground pepper.
Serve hot with steamed rice or whole wheat rotis. Its my favorite side dish for Dal and rice.
