Lets see how to make broccoli gravy for chapathi with step wise pictures:
wash peas thoroughly in running water and take it a vessel. pour just enough water to get it cooked. cook until done. takes approximately 8-10 minutes. it should be easily mashable.
take the cooked peas along with chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, amchur powder, cumin powder, garam masala and green chilli to a fine paste. if you so not have amchur powder just skip it.
heat oil in a pan and add bay leaves, cumin seeds, cloves, cardamom, chopped ginger and chopped garlic. fry till it is slightly brown.
once its brown, add sliced onions and curry leaves. fry in medium flame till pink.
furthermore, add tomato puree and fry till raw smell goes off. I have just blended one large tomato to make it puree.
at this point, add the prepared peas masala paste and fry for a minute. If it gets scorched. sprinkle little water and fry.
furthermore, after frying the masala, add the broccoli florets. chop them if you want tiny bite sized pieces.add salt to taste, water required to cook the vegetable. mix well. we will be closing and cooking the broccoli for about 5-10 minutes. so adjust water accordingly. you can add even 1 cup water to make it thin, later can reduce it by boiling.
close and cook for 8-10 minutes or until broccoli is cooked completely and is soft.
now add coconut milk and mix well. let it boil for 5 more minutes. coconut milk quantity can be adjusted to bring the curry to the required consistency.
lastly, add fresh cream and kasuri methi. mix well and switch off.
serve hot with chapathi.
