Broccoli Curry

For this edition of BM #19, I have chosen to post a few Calcium Rich Recipes. Typically we tend to associate Calcium with Dairy products. I plan to go a little off track and showcase some Calcium rich fruits and vegetables.

To begin with there is Spinach which is by far the richest source of calcium in vegetables (please correct me if my research is wrong!). Next comes Broccoli. 1 cup of cooked broccoli has about 180 mg of Calcium.
Check out this flavorful curry for Day 1 ..

Ingredients - 

Broccoli Florets 2 cups
Turmeric a pinch
Salt as needed
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp)
To Grind - 
Almonds 6-7 (also a source of Calcium)
Coconut Powder 2 tsp (grated fresh or frozen works fine too)
Coriander leaves few 
Green Chillies 1-2 (to taste)
Garlic (Optional)
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp

Method Of Preparation -

Grind the ingredients listed under 'To Grind' and set aside.

Steam the broccoli florets until they are just about tender.

In a heated kadai/wok, add oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients. After the mustard seeds pop, add the steamed broccoli and turmeric.

Mix in the ground Almond masala and sprinkle salt as per taste.

Remove from fire and serve it with cooked rice or roti.
