brocolli and eggs

June 8, 2008

that’s the order of the day!  i love eggs… and i love brocolli, especially, the way my mother taught me to make it.


  • 1 pound brocolli
  • 1/2 onion (sliced)
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon channa dal
  • 1 teaspoon urad dal
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon asofoetida
  • 10 dried red chillies
  • salt
  • chilli powder and/or any other masala (optional)

boil the brocolli with a little water for about 6-7 minutes.  keep it aside.  heat oil and add mustard seeds. when they start spluttering, add the urad dal, channa dal, curry leaves, red chillies and asofoetida and saute for about 15 seconds.  add onions and salt and saute till onions are cooked to your satisfaction.  add the chilli powder and toss in the brocolli.  stir, saute and serve!

i followed the recipe at to make the main course – egg masala.

my mother-in-law had made rasam.  and we had a sumptuous lunch!
