Easy Broccoli Stir fry | Easy Broccoli Poriyal | Easy Broccoli Upperi

Love quick fixes and love broccoli? Then this is the recipe for you. Actually you cannot call this a recipe as such, it is more like a salad kinda dish with a basic salt-pepper dressing. And this is how my mom makes broccoli at home. She says Indian spices do not go well with broccoli and so she never uses ginger-garlic paste or garam masala while making them. And I too agree and follow her while making broccoli. You can serve this as a side dish with dry or as a sabzi for your chapathi as well. So let's see this simple recipe today :)

Recipe Source: Ma

Preparation Time : 10 minutes

Cooking Time : 30 minutes

Serves : 2-3 persons 

I Used:

Broccoli - 100 gms
Onion - 1 medium sized - chopped
Tomato - ½ of a medium sized one - chopped
Pepper Powder - 2 tsp (As Needed)
Turmeric powder
As Needed
¼ tsp

The Way:

1. Clean and cut broccoli to small bite sized florets

2. Parboil the broccoli. This step is optional. If you want to parboil, in a saucepan heat water. When it starts to boil, add the broccoli florets along with salt and turmeric powder and reduce the flame to medium. Leave it for about 5 minutes. Then switch off the flame and drain the water

3. In another pan, heat oil. Add the chopped onions and saute

4. When they turn translucent, add the chopped tomatoes and saute

5. When the tomatoes are almost cooked, add in the pepper powder and salt. give a quick stir

6. Now add the par boiled broccoli and stir well. Leave it for 2-3 minutes. Then switch off the flame and serve. If you have not parboiled the broccoli florets, then add the broccoli and sprinkle some water. Close the lid and cook till done. Stir and sprinkle water (if needed) in between to see that it does not get burnt
