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.
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
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?
