Broccoli Bhurji Recipe

Broccoli Bhurji is a dry masala mixture which looks like scrambled version of it. The difference between South Indian poriyal and bhurji is, bhurji needs tomato, garam masala like spices and unlike the first one where coconut and sambar powder or chilis are must. I usually shred cauli flower and broccoli since my kiddos like to eat in that way, so
here too i shredded them. Also I have mentioned eggs here in the recipe and if you are not an Eggetarian do please skip it or use paneer. Do check my Instagram account to check how it was served for the lunch with other dishes.

Shredded Broccoli - 1 Cup
Ripen Tomato - 1 Number (Medium Size)
Onion - 1 Number (Medium Size)
Red Chili Powder - 1tsp
Garam Masala Powder - 3/4tsp
Eggs - 2 (Optional, you can replace with paneer or just ignore it)
Green Chili - 1 (Optional, I have used green capsicum instead of chili today)
Cumin seeds - 1/2tsp
Oil and salt - As needed
  • Wash the broccoli florets, drain the water and shred it using the veg grater/shredder.
  • In a pan/kadai add oil, when it is hot temper with cumin seeds.
  • Then add chopped onion and chopped green chili or capsicum.
  • Saute them till the raw smell disappears, turn light brown and reduce in its size.
  • Now add finely chopped tomato and salt.
  • Let them cook till tomato turns tender and mushy.
  • Now its the time to add red chili powder and garam masala powder.
  • Also immediately add shredded broccoli and saute in medium flame.
  • You can cover them with lid and cook for a while say 4 minutes approximate.
  • Also sprinkle some water if needed while cooking, but i didn't do.
  • Once it cooked, now add eggs (you can separately saute the eggs and add here too) and saute all together till raw smell disapear and bhurji comes all together in a good consistency without any moisture.
  • Serve it with rice or wrap it in roti or even fold it in masala dosa.
  • The healthy filling bhurji is ready in minutes.
  • Also I skip step by step pictures for the posts if it is a easy to make dish.
