Broccoli is a plant in the cabbage family, whose large flower head is used as a vegetable. Broccoli is high in vitamin C, as well as dietary fiber; it also contains multiple nutrients with potent anti-cancer properties and small amounts of selenium.

  • You can also pan fry broccoli directly instead of steaming. I used to steam since it has more flavor than pan fry.
  • Do not over cook broccoli. Cooking broccoli in right consistency is more important in this recipe otherwise entire process will be spoiled.
