Broccoli-Cauliflower-Paneer koottu

 





















I was in a mood to try some veggie side dish for my Onion bread yesterday...Broccoli & cauliflower in my fridge gave me a 70mm smile asking me to take them!....I usually dont show much affection towards broccoli, though they are rich in folic acid and vitamin C...At last I tried a combination of broccoli, cauliflower and some paneer, for that nonveggie bite!!(With every monastic swing of my mood I resolve not to harm my fellow living beings and to become a vegetarian, and there will always be some blogger like LG to break my resolution with very tempting non veggies, and I end up a poor sinner once again!!)Well,this is a very easy recipe...bachelors can easily give it a try.(Antony's inspiration!!)

Ingredients

Cauliflower florets-50g
Broccoli florets-50g
Potato-1 large(cut into pieces)
Paneer(Cottage cheese)-50g
Biriyani masala-1tbsp
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Salt-as required
Oil-1 tbsp
Water-as required

Method

Pressure cook the cleaned vegetables along with paneer for 2 minutes with a little water, salt, and turmeric powder .Now add oil and the biriyani masala( I used Pakistani Biriyani masala, readily available in the market...was lazy to make mine!!) and allow it to cook further for another 4 minutes. That's it . Your koottu is ready to go with paratha /Chappathi/bread. Posted by Picasa
