Broccoli Curry

broccoli_gravy Growing up, I used to be such a picky eater and refused to eat vegetables. Give me any fruit, I would eat it without complaining. Even now I’m not a big fan of any vegetable, but I have grown old enough to realize that whether you like it or not, you gotta eat it. I try to make it easy to eat by cooking it in a way which I would like. After lots of experimentation with broccoli, now I have started to like broccoli if it’s made this way. No biggie. Just another  tomato-onion gravy with broccoli in it and I loved it. Not just me, my brother who never ever comments on food said that this curry is too good. Here’s how I made it.. INGREDIENTS Broccoli- 1 head( cut into medium sized florets) Onion- 1 big(roughly chopped) Tomato- 2 medium (roughly chopped) Ginger Garlic paste- 1 tsp Cashews- a handful Jeera(cumin)- 1 tsp Turmeric Powder- 1/4 tsp Red chili powder- 1/2 tsp Garam masala- 1/2 tsp Kasuri methi- 1/2 tsp Oil- 2 tsp Salt- to taste METHOD
  1. Boil 4 cups of water. Once it starts boiling add the broccoli florets and turn off the stove and keep it closed for 15 minutes.
  2.  Heat 2 tsp of oil in a pan and add jeera to it. Fry for 1 minute.
  3. Add onions and fry until translucent. Add ginger garlic paste to it and saute for 2 mins.
  4. Turn off the stove and transfer this content to blender and blend it coarsely.
  5. Heat the pan and add the onion mixture back to pan and saute it.
  6. Meanwhile add tomatoes and cashews to the blender and puree it.
  7. Now add the tomato-cashew puree to the pan and mix well.
  8. Now bring in all the masala powders and add them to the mixture and mix well.
  9. Let the mixture thicken and you will see the oil oozing out.
  10. Now add broccoli to this and mix well.
  11. The water from the broccoli will be enough to thin out the gravy, if not add some more water.
  12. Oops I almost forgot salt. You may add salt now and mix well.
  13. Serve this curry with roti, naan or rice.
