BROCCOLI RICE RECIPE

BROCCOLI RICE IN INDIAN STYLE

Broccoli though very healthy i buy this very rarely as kids will not prefer to eat this. I normally make a Broccoli Soup or Broccoli stir fry  but this wanted to try a rice recipe with broccoli and made a Indian style Broccoli rice . This is almost similar to my recipe of capsicum rice. Me and my hubby enjoyed this broccoli rice and some how kids also had a little. You can make this for lunch box too as this can be done in a jiffy.

Taste was very good. Since we add GG paste and Garam masala broccoli rice willnot emit any smell
