Broccoli is the healthiest veggie when compare to all other veggies. But the taste of the broccoli is not liked by all. The stinky mustard taste keeps every one away from this healthy veggie. Broccoli is generally used in continental cuisine. Most of us donot like continetal food due to many reasons blanned or less spicy.

So making this healthy veggie in our style is the better way to feed our family members. So i have tried today Broccoli Thoran and it turned out very well. We liked it a lot and hope u people who try this recipe too like this recipe.
