Broccoli Poriyal/ Broccoli stir fry

You will need:

  • 1 lb brocolli
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tsp pepper powder
  • 2 cloves garlic(chopped finely)
  • ½ cup grated coconut
  • salt for taste
For tempering:.
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • ½ tsp mustard seeds
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp urad dal
  • 1 dry red chilli
  • few curry leaves (optional)


Step 1:

  • Chop onion finely and keep it aside.
  • Chop broccoli finely using knife. Or you can use food chopper to do fine chopping. I used food chopper to chop the broccoli.
Step 2:

Heat oil in a pan. When its hot add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, urad dal, dry red chilli and the curry leaves and allow it to splutter. Now add the chopped onions and chopped garlic to it. Saute it till it turns golden brown color.

Step 3:

Now add chopped broccoli to it. Add pepper powder and salt to it. Saute it or close the lid for couple of mins till its fully cooked. Since the broccoli is chopped finely it will take just 2 mins to cook.

Step 4:

If its watery dont close the lid. Just saute it for few mins. Check for salt. Finally add grated coconut and saute it for 2 more mins.

Serve with sambhar rice or even as side dish for roti, chappathi.
