Broccoli with Spicy Curd

This is a dish which i slightly modified from the one by Jamie Oliver, spiced up for the south Indian taste buds!

Another true example of how lovely broccoli can taste and a proof that it cannot be ignored.


  • Broccoli – One Flower – Separated as small florets
  • Baby Corn – 4 Sticks – Diced
  • Curd – 200ml
  • Jeera Powder – 1 Tbsp
  • Chilli Powder – 1 tsp
  • Salt – to Taste
  • Jeera – 2 Pinches
  • Mustard Seeds – 2 Pinches
  • Bengal Gram – 1/2 tbsp

Bring water to boil in a saucepan, add salt and put in the broccoli and baby corn and cook for 3 minutes

Drain the water and fish out the broccoli and baby corn, (keep the water, makes a lovely stock for other dishes)

Shock them with cold water to stop cooking further and to retain the crunchiness

In a separate boil, beat the curd till it becomes soft and slightly runny, add salt, chilli powder and jeera powder.

Now take a kadai, add some refined oil in it, temper the mustard seeds, jeera seeds and bengal gram. Once they are tempered, add the broccoli and babycorn, toss them for a few mins and take it out to the serving bowl.

Pour the beaten curd on the cooked broccoli and baby corn and serve! Simpppple!
