Hope you all had a great 'Mother's day'. Mine was wonderful. we celebrated the Mother's day in the Church and crowned the Mother Mary's statue in our home by a home made flower wreath. The Father's message was very encouraging. He asked all the people to stand to get Mother's day blessings, as he wanted to bless each and every one for the motherly feelings at heart. Even the men were also honored, as they also play the role of a mommy sometimes:) Hubby presented me a beautiful pair of rose bud earrings and a brooch made of coral. That was my long cherished wish and somehow he presented me the same thing without knowing. That's romantic. Isn't it friends!
For today's post here is 'An Indianised version of broccoli stir fry'.
Whenever I see a vegetable, I always look for a way to add my native touch to it. Even the broccoli couldn't escape my tawa:) So here is a simple poriyal with the nutritious broccoli.
Broccoli (chopped) - 2 cup
red onion - 1 (small)
any oil - 1 tbsp
fennel seed - 1 tsp
cilantro, curry leaf, mint leaf - few
red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/8 tsp
salt - to taste
Wash and clean the broccoli.
Chop it into medium size pieces.
Heat oil in a wok. Add fennel seeds and let them get red.
Then add the chopped onion, the leaves mentioned above and fry till the onion turns golden brown.
Then put the chopped broccoli and fry for a minute.
Add salt, red chilly powder, turmeric powder , garam masal powder, a handful of water and cook covered till the vegetable is cooked.
Take off lid and saute till all the moisture is gone.
Broccoli fry is ready!
Serve as side dish with sambar rice or roti or any rice.
