Besan Wali Broccoli | Broccoli Fry | Broccoli Recipe | Flavour Diary

Broccoli is not so popular in Indian cuisine but by looking at the benefits, i started to include broccoli in on daily cooking.Broccoli does not taste great but it healthy and has lot of health benifits. Broccoli helps in improving digestion and acts as a natural detoxification. Broccoli is high in vitamin K, which improves bone health by improving calcium absorption.Broccoli has many cancer fighting elements in it. 
 Today's recipe is basic version of broccoli which i use it as a side dish along with plain boiled rice and dal/rasam. Its a very simple dish to make its just boiling or steaming the broccoli and give tadka to it with besan. This is one easy way to have it...even if you don't like have it, because having it has many benefits to it.
