Broccoli Curd Rice

Eventhough broccolis are quite healthy for our health, sometimes its kinda hard to feed picky eaters, its really a hard task for me to feed everyone at home where i just love anything with broccolis, i picked few fresh broccoli florets from chinese store this weekend, after making out some stir-fries, they were some left over florets which i thought of making out some creamy soup, finally those greeny broccoli florets turned as delicious and colourful greeny curd rice which everyone at home relished with some spicy potato masala...Simple and delicious rice prepared with finely chopped broccoli florets tempered with spices and sauted until they shrinks a bit, cooked for few seconds with water and added to whisked curd..Watelse we need na!! have a look at this delicious dish and try out dears u will definitely love this yummyilicious healthy rice..

1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
5nos Curry leaves
1/2tsp Ginger (chopped finely)
