Spicy Broccoli Curry

 My kids both agree they love broccoli.  I always buy a big 3lb bag of broccoli crowns from Costco every week.  So we do eat a lot of broccoli and this is one of my favorite ways to cook it.  It cooks pretty fast and goes great with rice and lentils.  You can make it as spicy as you like.  I made it pretty spicy because my kids are requesting me to cook spicier since they are old enough to develop their palette for spicy food.  Of course we always have a glass of milk waiting for them in case they have to put any fires out.

1 1/2 lbs of broccoli florets (sliced small)
1 medium onion sliced or chopped
1 bell pepper or mild chilies sliced or chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp fennugreek seeds
1 small piece of cinnamon stick
10-12 curry leaves
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
red chili powder to taste (or cayenne powder)
red chili flakes to taste
salt to taste

Heat 2Tbs of canola oil on medium heat in a large frying pan (preferably with a lid).  Once the oil is heated add cumin seeds, cinnamon stick, mustard seeds, fennugreek seeds and curry leaves and fry for 30 seconds. Then add the onion and peppers and fry for another minute.
 Then add chopped broccoli and some salt and fry with the onions and spices.  Next add the turmeric, red chili flakes and powder.  Lower heat to medium-low and put lid on pan so broccoli can steam to soften.  If your ingredients are too dry sprinkle 1-2 Tbs of water over the broccoli.  Once broccoli is cooked to your desired tenderness, taste for salt and seasoning an serve with rice and other curries. Enjoy.
