Indian Style Broccoli Stirfry

Broccoli is a power house of nutrition. It is a rich source of calcium, vitamin c, and folic acid. So let's cook broccoli Indian way.......... It's tasty.

  • Broccoli- 250 gm (approx 2 cups)
  • Onion, chopped- ½ to ¾ cup
  • Garlic cloves, crushed- 6
  • Green chilies, cut- 2
  • Asafoetida ( Hing)- ¼ tsp
  • Garam masala- 1 tsp
  • Fresh coconut, scraped- 2 tbsp (optional)
  • Oil- 2 to 3 tbsp
  • Salt- to taste

  • Cut the broccoli into florets.Take tender steams and chop them.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add the garlic, green chillies and saute for a while.
  • Add chopped onions and sauté till it becomes translucent.
  • Add hing and saute for a while.
  • Add the broccoli, salt and mix well and cover the pan with a lid and let it cook for a while on a low flame. Keep stirring in between.
  • Add garam masala when broccoli is half cooked(the broccoli should not become very tender, it should be little crisp even after cooking).
  • Finally add the coconut and stir for a while. You may add little lemon juice if you like.
  • Serve hot with chapati or dal-rice.
