Broccoli Stir Fry: 

Today, I’m here with a delicious and simple stir-fry focused on broccoli and chick pea flour mixture. Broccoli is a nutritious vegetable that is loaded with super nutrients and have therapeutic properties.

I clipped this recipe
from Show me the Curry last week and have found it to be the best-tasting broccoli fry.

It's easy to cook broccoli and it readily absorbs the tasty flavors in this stir fry recipe. You can also modify this recipe, to include any veggies you choose.

This stir fry goes best with rice or even with roti & chapatti.
