Broccoli Stir Fry

Here is a spicy broccoli stir fry recipe that is typical of Sri Lankan cooking. Maldive fish is usally used to enhance the flavour of side dishes. I have listed 1 teaspoon of chilli powder which could be spicy for some , so feel free to reduce it according to your preference. This side dish goes well with rice, naan and curries.

Broccoli Stir Fry
1 large head broccoli - cut small, blanched and drained well.
1 medium onion - finely chopped
3 tb small dried shrimp ( soaked and dried) ( optional)
salt to taste
1 red chili - chopped
1 tsp chilli powder
2 cloves garlic - minced
2 tb peanut oil

Heat oil in saute pan and lightly caramelize garlic and chopped onions on medium heat. Add chopped chilli, chilli powder, salt and dried shrimp and stir well. Add in blanched broccoli pieces and adjust seasonings. Saute for 1 minute and take off heat. Serve as a side dish.

I love broccoli and this dish looks really good. Especially with the addition of dried shrimp.
