Broccoli Thoran

Are you amused by the name of the recipe? I have dressed up the firangi broccoli in a malayali way. I have tried broccoli in pasta and soup before and wanted to try something indian with it. One day while I was preparing cauliflower thoran , the idea of a thoran with broccoli struck me. It turned out much better than expected, do give it a try.


Broccoli - 1, weighing about 500 gms
Onion - 1/2 of a medium size, finely chopped
Garlic - 2 cloves, chopped
Green chilly - 3 or 4, slit
Shredded coconut - 2 tbsp
Curry leaves - a few

Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds/Jeera - 1/2 tsp


1. Clean broccoli in salted hot water(like you clean cauliflower). Finely chop the florets.
2. In a bowl, mix the chopped broccoli, onion, garlic, green chillies, shredded coconut, curry leaves and salt. Mix well with your fingers.
3. Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds followed by cumin seeds. Add the broccoli mix and sprinkle 1-2 tbsp of water. Heap it to the center of the pan and cover and cook till done.
4. If there is any water left, stir fry till the thoran becomes dry.

Serve with rice...
