How to Make Broccoli Masala

  • Chop the broccoli stems finely, then add the floret part and chop everything together. (Tip: chopping broccoli in a chopper cuts it really fine, which improves the taste of the vegetable.)
  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a non-stick pan (kadai).
  • Add jeera and rai. When it splutters, add ginger, garlic, and green chillies and cook until brown.
  • Add hing and haldi.
  • Add the chopped broccoli and fry in medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
  • When slightly brown, add salt and mix.
  • Fry for another 1 or 2 minutes and add all the other masalas.
  • Add amchur in the end and mix it. Immediately switch off the gas.
