BROCOLLI AND PEAS STIR FRY


Brocolli belongs to the cabbage family and is rich in nutrients like beta carotene and vitamin C. It reduces the risk of cancer, heart disease and also reduces blood pressure.

NOTE: Brocolli retains its nutritive value when cooked crunchy. Brocolli should not be steamed or boiled for more than 3-5 minutes. Overcooking will decrease its nutritional value. Perfectly cooked brocolli has a bright green colour.

INGREDIENTS:

Brocolli - 1
Shelled peas - 1/4 cup
Salt - as per taste
Cumin seeds - 1/8 tsp.
Green chillies - 2 (slit)
White pepper powder - 1/4 tsp.
Butter - 2 tsp.
Parsley - for garnishing (optional)

METHOD:

Wash and cut the brocolli to florets.

Heat a pan, melt butter, add the cumin seeds. When it sizzles, add the green chillies, peas, brocolli and salt. Sauté on a high flame for a minute. Sprinkle little water, simmer the stove and cook it covered till crunchy. Add white pepper powder , give a quick sauté, garnish with parsley and serve hot.

BTW today mrng i tried ur masala idly and it was awesome .. usually i used to go with kaima idly for the last set of idly batter , this time it was ur recipe whch made the breakfast a delicious one ..thanx and regards

  17. Shobi, brocolli loses its nutrition when overcooked. It should be crunchy and cooked, Another way is to cut the brocolli through the stems and ensure the stems are thinner and like slices. If you do like that,it will be cooked as said. If the stems are thick, you will end up in vain. Try it next time.
