Broccoli Masala

Its winters and it is getting difficult to find fresh vegetables. Today my Co-sister R mentioned that she tried this recipe of broccoli and it turned out quite well. So I have borrowed this recipe from her along with the picture to share with you guys.

Also I am sending this recipe for Siri's - Healing Foods Event which is guest hosted by Sayali - Treat Your Tongue. The theme for this month is Broccoli.

Ingredients :
Broccoli : 250 grams - cut into pieces
Onion : 1 Chopped
Tomatoes : 2 Chopped
Mustard Seeds : 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder : 1 tsp
Coriander Powder : 1 tsp
Garam Masala : 1 tsp
Lemon Juice : 1 tbsp
Yogurt : 2 tbsp
Shredded Coconut : 2 tbsp
Oil : 1 tbsp

Recipe :
Steam the broccoli for 5 minutes. It should still be firm. Alternatively, you can boil water. remove it from flame and then soak the broccoli in it for 10 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds. Let them pop. When the popping slows down, add the onion. Saute till the onions are transculent. Now add the tomatoes, turmeric, coriander powder and the garam masala. Saute them all together till tomatoes are cooked. Now add the yogurt and coconut and stir well.

Add some water, around 1/4 cup. Bring it to a boil. Now add the broccoli. Stir well. Cook till the broccoli is tender. It will take approximately 5-7 minutes. Remove from flame. Put the lemon juice. Stir well and serve.
