BROCCOLI IN YOGURT SAUCE (DAHI BROCCOLI)

Here is an easy way to include broccoli into Indian cuisine. Broccoli has a high nutritional value, with full of potassium, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, beta-carotene, a rich source of fiber and also a good antioxidant. Broccoli is normally used in salads, soups, sandwiches and baked. This time I cooked broccoli in traditional yogurt sauce, with simple onion garlic and ginger paste. But truely, it comes out as a very delectable and tasty side.

Valentine's day is approaching, Pari of Foodelicious and CupoNation have organised a wonderful event as well as a giveaway. Friends do participate by clicking Foodelicious's link above.


INGREDIENTS:
1 Large Broccoli
3 Medium Onions
3-4 Pods Garlic
1" Long Ginger
1 Cup Plain Yogurt (thick sour curd)
1/2 tsp Freshly Grounded Garam Masala
1 tsp Butter
1 tsp Sugar
3 tbsps Oil
Salt to taste
1/2 Cup Warm Water

METHOD:

Wash broccoli, drain water completely. Cut into bite sized florets. Keep aside.

Cut 1&1/2 onions in slices. Grind remaining onions, garlic and ginger together to make a smooth paste. Set aside.

Combine yogurt, grinded paste salt and sugar in a bowl. Beat nicely. Add broccoli florets in it. Keep marinated broccoli aside for 3-4 hours (atleast 2 hours) preferably in refrigerator.

Heat oil and butter in a wok or pan. Add onion slices in it. Fry till onion turns into golden.

Add marinated broccoli in it. Fold nicely and saute for 1-2 minutes.

Pour 1/2 cup warm water in it. Mix well.

Cover and cook for 8-10 minues on medium heat, untill broccoli is tender. Sprinkle garam masala powder on the top, fold nicely. Remove from heat now.

Serve hot with any Indian flat bread or any rice dish. Enjoy!!!
