How to make Broccoli & Vegetable Coconut Curry Recipe
To begin making the Broccoli & Vegetable Coconut Curry Recipe, we will first make the Broccoli Curry Masala.
In a small pan; roast the dry red chillies, fenugreek, coriander, cumin and black pepper until you can smell the roasted aromas. Add these to a small blender jar, along with the coconut, tamarind and turmeric powder. Grind the spices adding very little water to make a smooth curry paste. The curry paste is now ready. Keep aside.
In the next step; heat a teaspoon of oil in a pan; add the chopped onions, broccoli and red bell peppers and saute for a couple of minutes until the onions are soft and tender. Add the curry paste and saute for a couple of more minutes. Stir in salt and add about 1-1/2 to 2 cups of water. You essentially want a thick gravy for the Broccoli Curry; hence add water accordingly.
Give all the ingredients a good stir. Check the salt levels and adjust to suit your taste. Give the mixture a quick boil only when you are ready to serve.
