Broccoli In Hot Garlic Sauce

I started cooking broccoli for the past 3 years only, initially I hesitate to cook mushroom, broccoli, dunno the exact reason but strong hesitation was there...I pick the mushroom packets n broccoli crowns but at the end of shopping my mind will change n will keep it in their respective places. This is what happening in the initial days here. One fine day H brought this Broccoli in hot garlic sauce n veg fried rice from China Buffet, after tasting the broccoli I started loving it and after that started using it in my regular cooking.


When it's raw n fresh, broccoli doesn't look much pleasing but after cooking like stir fry, baked broccoli, roasted broccoli it looks so attractive, appetizing n I love it's vibrant green color. And many thanks to this blogging world, after my blog I started cooking broccoli in many ways, have experimented more and one of my recent experiment Broccoli Snack Roll was super doper Hit.
Now coming to the recipe, it's my long time wish to try this broccoli in hot sauce and finally tried few weeks back and am happy with my result, only thing is broccoli turned bit mushy becoz after adding sauce it should be stir fry in medium heat for only a minute and should turn off when it get thickened but i left in the stove as such n went to attend a call, when i came back sauce was completely drained n broccoli turned bit mushy/soft other wise flavor n taste was good. Will try to update this pics next time when i make perfectly ;)
I searched for this recipe, each one is diff n I lack one or the other ingredients...so after referring many sites I come up with the following recipe n it tasted almost the same like the restaurant one. If u love broccoli then give it a try...
