Broccoli Stir Fry | Broccoli Poriyal

Broccoli is one of the healthiest green veggies and I have been trying to include it in our diet. I recently made broccoli pulao and this time made this simple broccoli stir fry. Tastes very good with any rice variety.

Broccoli StirFry

1. Do not add too much water. We like the broccoli to remain crunchy. 
2. You can also make this poriyal without adding too much masala. The choice is your's. We prefer it this way.

Until next time,
