Broccoli Stir with Moong Dal

Broccoli Stir with Moong Dal

Had a fun filled evening watching super bowl, sometimes impromptu events turn out so much better than planned . It was a totally unplanned and turned out to be super fun especially for kids. Kids were so happy that Saints won they were rooting for Brees big time.
Few days ago when I posted spinach with moong dal got few comments on fb saying that this combination would work for cabbage very well, this week I had broccoli lying on my refrigerator so replicated the receipe with broccoli instead spinach. Pretty simple and stir fried Broccoli tastes amazing.

about a pound of broccoli, cleaned and chopped fine

1/2 cup of moong dal soaked in water for about 1/2 hr

For seasoning

2 tbsp finely diced ginger

4-5 red chilies

1 tbsp cumin/jeera

1 tbsp urad dal

1 tbsp mustard seeds

8-10 curry leaves

a pinch of tumeric

salt according to taste

2 tbsp oil


1. Heat a skillet and add oil , when hot add cumin,urad,mustard, red chilies , ginger and curry leaves

2. saute till mustard seeds begin to crack

3. Add drained moong dal and fry till the raw smell is gone for about a minute or two

4. Add cut broccoli, tumeric and salt and stir well.

5. Cook covered for 4-5 minutes.

6. Broccoli cooks very fast, check for salt and adjust accordingly ,remove from heat and serve

in fact makes a complete meal, wrap it in a roti or a tortilla and make it a healthy wholesome meal.
