Broccoli in Five Spices


 This is one of the most fragrant Broccoli recipes I have come across. The recipe is from Monisha Bharadwaj’s India’s Vegetarian Cooking.
She have used five whole spice seeds :Cumin, fenugreek, kalonji (Nigella seeds) fennel and mustard
The broccoli florets absorb all the flavors and tastes amazing. I prefer to ignore the nutty stems as it’s too lazy to absorb any flavor
