  • Broccoli is also good with green onions. I would substitute 1 bunch of green onions, cleaned and chopped. Just saute them lightly before adding the broccoli as it doesn’t take as much cooking as regular onion.
  • If you or those in your house don’t like onion at all, you can simply leave it out.
  • There isn’t much sugar in this dish and the sugar really evens out the taste a bit, but it is optional. If you are really cutting down on sugar, you can cut the amount in half or omit it.

Please note that if you really need this recipe to be gluten free make sure your soy sauce is gluten free. Some are not.

    First,you should wash the broccoli fully,and cut it small pieces. In the pan,add one spoon of oil.(required)

    Add curry leaves, one big onion(cut it small)and saute well,until it becomes brown Add 1/4 spoon of salt,1/4 spoon of chili powder.(if you want pepper,a little bit added with chili powder). Saute well. Add one bunch of broccoli. Spread little bit of water on that and saute well until broccoli boils.

    Serve hot with rice.
