Broccoli Poriyal/Easy LunchBox recipes

Broccoli is a  very tasty green veggie .Its a cousin of cauliflower and  purple cauliflowers  .Yes Broccoli looks similiar to cauliflower in shape but taste and color is little different .Like cauliflower it has more vitamin C and consumed  mainly during winter season to relieve cold  because it has lots of vitamin C.Half a cup of broccoli has 52 mg of vitamin C this is what the wikipedia says .It has many immune benefits like anti bacterial,anti viral and anti cancer. It can be taken as a soup,simple pepperfry ,in fried rice or you can add to your pasta dishes as well  .I buy these broccolis often and do this poriyal and pepper fry  .
