Diwali 2014

Monday, January 25, 2010

                  This is the first time I cooked broccoli at home,but I have had twice before in form of kofta and in sizzlers,but both me and my hubby are not big fan of this veggi,hubby hates this veggi actually. So never thought of buying and cooking at home. But because of its nutritional value I wanted to make my kid eat this one. He loves cauliflower, so I had a confidence that he might like as its looks resemble cauliflower. And so I made along with fried rice one day and he just loved the combo! Now I am happy that I tried! I just simply Google-d  the recipe and got an idea and made my own version.

Method:

  1. Cut broccoli into small bite size pieces as we do for cauliflower.I parboiled the broccoli(you can skip this step too).

  3. Heat a pan with oil(I used olive oil) and temper with the items given under the ‘to temper’   table.

  5. Add  ginger,onion and fry for a minute,add the sambar powder and salt and just give it a stir and add the broccoli florets and mix well.

  7. Keep in low flame and cook covered for 3-5 minutes, without changing its crunchiness.

  53. Hi, I am a regular reader of your blog.
    I just saw the picture of your kalkandu sadham in Aval Vikatan's 30 vagai Kalyana Samayal special edition. I also noticed that the copyright name is missing on the photo - I am not sure if you are aware of this so just wanted to let you know about this.
    If you dont have the subscription for Vikatan, let me know your email I would be happy to send the snapshot of the image.
