Broccoli Mushroom Stir fry

It is only recently that we started using broccoli. Actually I didn't know what to make of it until I saw this recipe. It is quite simple and quick. You can serve this with rotis or as a starter too. Yaa a healthy starter. My son likes to pick and eat each piece. Use the dry red chilli flakes as per your tolerance level.

You need
  • Mushrooms - 8 big (I used button mushrooms)
  • Broccoli - 10 florets (medium sized)
  • Garlic - 1 clove
  • Dry red chilli flakes- 1 tsp (increase/decrease acc. to your tolerance)
  • Oil for stir frying
  • Salt to taste

  • Wash the broccoli florets and put in boiling water. Let it simmer for 5 minutes. Add salt to taste.
  • After 5 minutes drain the water and put the florets in cold water.
  • Chop mushroom into medium size pieces
  • In a thick bottomed vessel heat oil.
  • Add chopped garlic and let is turn light brown. 
  • Add the mushrooms. Add salt to taste (remember you've already added salt while boiling broccoli. So add accordingly here). Saute for 2 minutes. 
  • Add broccoli florets and dry chilli flakes.
  • Put on low flame and saute until all water dries up and you get a colourful stir fry. (You don't to have to add water. It oozed out of mushroom)
