Broccoli Masala

Hey guys! The recipe I am posting today can be made for lunch. It is a very yummy way of serving broccoli. It is very easy and simple to make it. Serve it with roti, paratha or just rice. So lets get cooking….

Ingredients:

For vegetable:

Broccoli – 200 grams

Yellow bell pepper (diced) – 1 small

Red bell pepper (diced) – 1 small

Green capsicum (diced) – 1 small

Onion (diced) – 1 small

Garlic (finely chopped) – 5-6 cloves

Salt – 1/2 tsp

Kashmiri red chilli powder – 1 tsp

Black pepper powder – 1 tsp

Water – 2 cups

For gravy:

Tomatoes (roughly chopped) – 3 medium

Onions (roughly chopped) – 2 medium

Kaju/Cashew – 8 pieces

Kashmiri red chilly (dry) – 4-5 pieces

Garlic cloves – 8

Ginger – 1 inch

Boiled green peas – 1/2 cup

Turmeric powder – 1 tsp

Kashmiri red chilli powder – 1 tbsp

Coriander-cumin powder – 1 tbsp

Garam masala powder – 1 tsp

Kasuri methi – 1 tsp

Curd – 1/4 cup

Tomato ketchup – 1 tsp

Salt as per taste

Grated cheese – 2 cubes

Warm water – 1/4 cup

Water – 3 cups

Other:

Butter – 1 tbsp

Oil – 1 tsp

Asafoetida/Hing – 1/ tsp

Cumin seeds – 1 tsp

Cloves/Laving – 2-3 pieces

Cinnamon – 1 inch

Method:

For vegetables:

1) Boil 2 cups of water. Blanch the broccoli in the boiling water for 2-3 mins and take it out.

2) In a wok take oil and add the garlic to it. Saute till garlic turns golden brown. Now add the bell peppers, onion and broccoli to this. Add the salt, red chilli powder and black pepper powder and toss the vegetables together. Cook on high flame for 3-5 mins. Keep tossing it. The vegetables will cook but also stay crunchy.

For gravy:

1) Take 3 cups of water. To this add the tomatoes, onions, kaju, garlic cloves, ginger and kashmiri chilli (de-seed it) and let it boil till cooked. This will take around 10 mins. Now strain it and let it cool. Grind it into a fine paste once cooled down.

2) In a wok take the butter and oil and let it become warm. Now add the hing, cumin seeds, cloves/laving and cinnamon to it. Once seeds crackle add the above prepared gravy/paste. Now add the kashmiri red chilli powder, haldi powder, cumin-coriander powder, curd and salt and mix it all well. Once the oil starts to float on top add the above stir fried vegetables and boiled green peas to this. Now add ketchup, garam masala powder, grated cheese, salt and slightly crush the kasri methi and add it. Mix it all well. Cover and cook on low flame for 2-3 mins. Finall add the warm water to adjust the consistency and mix it.

3) Garnish with chopped coriander and grated cheese.

    2. I had no idea broccoli could be made into a mssala gravy… maybe cuz I only like it lightly stir fried or raw in salads. But I must try this as it is totally new for me.
