Stir fried Broccoli with Indian spices

As we all know Broccoli is not an Indian vegetable, it reached India just a few years ago. But we Indians are good at adapting new things and use them according to our taste. Broccoli is a close cousin of  Indian Cauliflower. There are differences but yet there are quite a number of common characteristics.

I have used Broccoli with Indian spices and tried to give it a Desi touch. Let’s have a look at the recipe.
