Broccoli has many health benefits but the taste of it does not make people fancy it . So those who does not like broccoli this is the must try dish. I found broccoli goes well with potatoes when I made broccoli potato masala for chapatis using a tomato based gravy. So I wanted to try a variation of that which suits for plain rice and curry. My research in that produced a quick and tasty variation which is so healthy as it includes less oil and no coconut. After trying out this recipe with in two months I have prepared around 6 times and relished my taste buds!
