Broccoli Rice / Broccoli Fried Rice

Broccoli is a vegetable with lot of health benefits. It is also considered as one of the healthiest food. However, after bringing it from market you must be thinking how to make a dish out of it?? Earlier I have shared Broccoli in Soya Sauce and Broccoli Baby Corn Chicken in Soya Sauce, today I am sharing a simple one pot meal Broccoli Rice or Broccoli Fried Rice. You can pack this in lunchbox as well.

This recipe has an Indo-Chinese flavour. I have added only broccoli to get the distinct taste of this vegetable which is actually very good. You can also add other vegetables including carrot, beans along with broccoli. However, I would suggest to stick with one vegetable and that is broccoli. I serve this dish along with an accompany of Chilli Potato.

So next time when you are at supermarket, don't think twice to pick up a broccoli!!
