Broccoli rice Indian style

This Broccoli rice in Indian style is a recipe which I prepared recently. I was planning to prepare this long time before, but some how kept postponing it. I usually prepare broccoli soup most of the times as it's our family favorite. Last I prepared and When I tasted, I felt I could have reduced the pepper, as it is bit spicy and also, should have chopped broccoli into more finer pieces. Let's see how to prepare this one pot meal - broccoli rice.

how to make broccoli rice

1. I added both green chilli and pepper and I felt bit more spicy. So you can use either one or reduce pepper level. 
2. Chop the broccoli very finely. 
3. Sprinkle little water. If more water is added, broccoli becomes cooked well and becomes soft.
4. Adding ghee is optional, but it enhances the flavor.
5. You can use vegetable oil also.
