Broccoli Masala / Broccoli Onion Tomato Masala

One more addition to my Broccoli Recipes, Broccoli Masala. This recipe was lying in my draft more than a month, somehow this did not get my attention these days and there are few more recipes like that which i cooked and clicked long back. For some reason and events the other recipes took the priority and now these recipes helps me to feed my blog since i did not cook anything recently. Almost spending my days sitting idle not interested in anything. The weather also dull and dark one more reason for my laziness, hope my mind change in coming days so that i can cook some yummy recipes to share here :)

Now coming to the recipe Broccoli Masala, i am bored with regular Broccoli Stir Fry so for a change tried this yummy Broccoli Masala with the addition of onion-tomato-spices. And the recipe also come out so good and we loved it, perfect with Curd Rice, Sambar Sadham & even makes a perfect Sides with Chapathi/Rotis. My trial was success and am happy but i dunno what to name the dish? this is not a curry or a stir fry and was confused to name the dish. Then While chatting with Priya(Priya's Versatile Recipes) i told the recipe i made and asked for the recipe name, immediately she told to name as Broccoli Masala and i liked it and also a apt name. Next to Google i refer/Ask Priya for all my doubts and recipes :) She is my google friend ;)
