Eating Broccoli can’t get any easier or tastier than this. This broccoli stir-fry with just 3 ingredients (well, if you don’t count the salt and oil) is a breeze to make. It won points with both my DH and DS, the picky-eaters. It is great as a snack with a dollop of yogurt or as a side with any rice dish or meat.
Broccoli – florets from 2 heads
Dry Red chillies – 2
Garlic powder – 1 tsp
Salt – to taste
Oil – 1 tsp
Wash and separate broccoli florets to bite-size. Shake off excess water and microwave in a partially closed container for 4 minutes, tossing once in between. Alternatively you could steam the broccoli. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a non-stick fry pan, in medium heat and add the broken red chillies and the garlic powder. Add salt and the cooked broccoli florets. Stir fry until fully mixed. Serve warm.
Adding salt in the oil ensures better distribution and works well for most dishes which does not have a medium like water or gravy or lot of oil.
