Beetroot Broccoli Sabzi Fry2014-11-02
Beetroot Broccoli Sabzi Fry – As we are living in a small city in Germany, we do not have opportunity to get most of the Indian vegetables. Luckily, we have some Indian online shops, so that we could buy original Indian spices and groceries. I always try to cook German vegetables in Indian style. My dietician used to advice that Indians who are living abroad are lack of Iron / Hemoglobin. She always advice me to consume more of iron rich foods like broccoli, beetroot, spinat etc. This is the short story behind this healthy recipe of Beetroot Broccoli curry. I could not able to eat boiled broccoli just like that, since I got addicted to Indian taste. So, I tried to cook many variation of broccoli. Finally, Beetroot Broccoli sabzi worked out for me. Beetroot Broccoli sabji is made out of beetroot, broccoli, besan flour (see tips why i added this) with exotic traditional indian spices. My homemade recipe turned out really delicious, moreover its very healthy. I am trying to keep the recipe preparation steps as easy as possible, so that it will be easy for all levels of Indian cooking.
