Welcome to the world of simple and easy recipes...

We, the ‘aakrantham crew’ extend our special greetings to the beginners in cooking, the novice Bachelors, suffering husbands for being the guinea pig of wife’s culinary experimentations and the most sophisticated cooking experts who, out of their intricate and above-average try-outs have forgotten their beginning point in cooking. Yes! Our aim is to show the simplified paths of cooking, to depict the formulae for day-to-day needs to kill the hunger, to help out someone who is completely new to kitchen and those whose breaths stop hearing the name of dishes with words like ‘forelle’, ‘pecam’, ‘oreo’, ‘agua’ e.t.c in it.

Roasted Broccoli

I got an FB message from one of our page fans asking why there are no new recipes posted in "aakrantham". She badly wanted a vegetable recipe it seems. Then I assigned a task to her by simply asking her to try something with Broccoli and take snaps to post on this blog on her behalf. Though I told her without much expectation, the very next day she turned up with a beautifully written recipe and a tempting snap. Thanks to Simi Seethy. So here we post our next recipe after a long gap. Hope you guys enjoy reading, trying and eating this special Broccoli recipe.

 Shallots - 10  no.s
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Green chillies -2 no. s
Salt - as needed
Mustard seeds - 2 tsp
Oil - for frying

How to:
 Sauté mustard in oil till it sputter. Add chopped onion and stir for a while. When the onion gets fried, add washed broccoli, pepper powder, green chillies and salt. Make sure that you don't add water. Cook for 3 or 4 minutes in a high flame by closing the lid. The spicy fried broccoli is ready.

Do have a try and let us know the feedback. Cheers..!!

Note: Broccoli has been called a miracle food. It contains high levels of fiber (both soluble and insoluble) and is a rich source of vitamin-C.  In fact, just a 100 gram serving of broccoli will provide you with more than 150% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C,There is an enzyme in broccoli called myrosinase which can reduce the risk of developing cancer.You can also eat broccoli raw to gain maximum benefit
