Broccoli with Bengal gram Daal and Fenugreek seeds!!

Continuing on my Superfood diet I made another dish which is very healthy and nutrious to maintain my 0 size figure in good health in this 21st Century!!! Broccoli, when I saw first time in U.K, thought why do they have green Cauliflower? well over 20 years ago... in India never heard about it...well now I know brocolli inside out....;0)) We include broccoli in our diet specially for getting Iron, as we are vegetarian very hard to get all the vitamins and minerals....Very thankful to Italians who brought this prized vegetable with them to the new world around Colonial times...now I am in love with this little green gem!!!  Also Bengal gram Daal which is full of protien and has very low GI values( which ranks foods on how they effect our blood sugar levels) Chana Daal is very beneficial for Diabetic people...for more info see here ...Now on Fenugreek seeds you all know about it, so I am not going write about it and coming to my recipe....

You will Need:-
  • 2 cup Broccoli florets(steamed)
  • 1/2 cup Bengal gram daal (soaked and cooked not mushed)-Chana daal
  • 1/4 cup Fenugreek Seeds (soaked about 2-3 hours)
  • 1 big Onion finely chopped
  • 3-4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • Salt t taste
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil(pomace from Italy I use)
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tsp corinder and cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala
Method:-

Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan and add onion and fry for few minutes.  Add garlic and let it brown.  Now add steamed broccoli and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Add channa daal and fenugreek seeds without water and mix well.  Now add salt and all the masala and mix well and cook further for 5-6 minutes on a medium heat.  Serve hot with roti or naan..we had ours with roti and BUTTERNUT SQUASH Raita..RECIPE COMING SOON..

Enjoy as much as we did and specially my kids without any fuss!!!! I know my rotis don't look like roti, coz I use Wholemeal Flour which is very healthy and full of fibre without any oil or ghee...
