This is a very simple recipe. My daughter likes Broccoli very much. She eats it saying that she is eating trees. To her each floret of Broccoli looks like a small tree :-)


Broccoli ------------ 1 (cut it in to florets)
Onion sliced ------ as needed. (If using small onion, use about 4 to 5)
Ginger ------------- a small piece
Garlic ------------  1 clove
Green chilly ----- 1
Make a paste of ginger,garlic & green chilly or chop very finely.
Oil ----------------- 1 tsp
Mustard seed---- 1/4 tsp
Dried red chilly --- 1 or 2
Curry leaves as needed.
Cumin ------------ 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida ------- a pinch
Urad dal --------- 1/4 tsp


  1. Add a tsp of oil to medium hot pan and splutter the mustard seeds.
  2. Add the dried red chilly, asafoetida,urad dal & curry leaves. Add these one by one.
  3. Next saute the onions. Once the onion becomes soft, add a tsp of ginger garlic and green chilly paste (or chopped).
  4. Cook it till the raw smell goes.
  5. Next add broccoli,little water and salt.
