Sautéed Broccoli

This year, I am totally in love with the winter. 2010 started with a beautiful, tamed and tolerable winter. The last years winter here was horrible, with harsh snowstorms almost every week and grey skies with the sun gone for a long holiday behind the clouds. Lets just hope that this year along with all the coming years brings to us all good things and cheers us every way inshallah, Ameen.

I also love the market at this time of the year brimming with gorgeous winter vegetables and fruits. Broccoli is one such vegetable that makes it appearance at its best this time of the year.

Sautéed Broccoli

How do I like my broccoli? Simply sautéed along with a dash of fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper in warm oil. Hmm, comfort and nourishment in a bowl.

Bhuni huwi Hari Phool Gobi – Sautéed Broccoli

Canola oil – 2 tsp
Broccoli – 1, large head, cut into florets, washed and drained
Lemon juice – 2 tbsp (or according to taste)
Salt and Black pepper powder, to taste

Method:

Warm a skillet at medium high heat and as soon as it is hot, add broccoli and stir fry until the broccoli is bright green, about a minute or two. The aroma of sautéing broccoli is just amazing! Immediately add the rest of the ingredients and stir fry until broccoli is crisp tender and cooked, about 2-3 minutes more.

I am interested to know, what is Broccoli rightly called in Urdu language?

Luv,
Mona

  1. AMAZING…BROCOLLI IS ONE OF MY PERSONAL FAVOURATE VEGETABLE,ALSO IF A TABLE SPOON OF MIXED DRIED HERBS ARE ADDED WHILE STIR FRYING BROCCOLI IT WILL GIVE A AMAZING AROMA..

  2. Great veggie! love it.
    You could also add a dash of garlic salt and/or fresh garlic to the saute. I also steam/boil for a brief bit, add a little low-cal butter, pepper and garlic salt. If you want a chinese flavour, add a tinge of soy sauce! Enjoy!

  3. that’s one of the best ways to enjoy broccoli , simple and delicious!!

    Roasting the broccoli at high heat for a couple of minutes before adding the ingredients is interesting!!
    I’ll make this for my husband who is a Broccoli fanatic !!
