Broccoli Potato Fry / Potato Stir Fry With Broccoli / Potato Varuval With Broccoli

Potato and broccoli are my family's most favorite vegetable and we love it any form. I often make dishes with these two veggies atleast a simple stir fry or a oven roasted Broccoli. Today's recipe is also one such simple and easy to make stir fry that i made for lunch on a lazy day. Some days i make an elaborate south indian lunch with sambar, rasam, poriyal, varuval, papad or chapathi, any veg curry, raita for lunch. But some days either simple rasam or curd rice with this potato stir fry.
This time have few florets left in the fridge, so thought of adding it to the potato fry and sure its an awesome and flavorful combo. The fry tasted yumm with rasam and rice. We just loved it..This Broccoli Potato Fry does not involve much spices and mildly flavored with garlic. Very simple and easy to make side dish that pairs well with any Indian Meal.
