Indian broccoli?


Calabrese never struck me as being an Indian food. Silly me!

  1. Heat ghee in a wok or large pan
  2. When hot, add cumin seeds and fry for a minute or two
  3. Add the broccoli pieces and fry for a few minutes
  4. Add remaining spices and a 2 tablespoons of water so there is enough moisture to help it cook and prevent it sticking
  5. Cover and cook on a low heat until it is cooked to your liking


Replace broccoli with a head of cauliflower.

Add some sliced red or green peppers when you add the broccoli.

If you prefer your cauliflower or broccoli to be very well cooked rather than crispy, then boil separately for 4 minutes before stir-frying.
