Broccoli besan subji/stir fry

        I had bought a broccoli after a long time. My son loves it.Though I always add them in some mixed curry, I was searching for some new recipe and I found it here. I just loved the Indianized broccoli recipe and made it right away. It tasted so wonderful and I do look forward to make it again.
