Broccoli with Egg

Broccoli's noteworthy nutrients include vitamin C, vitamin A (mostly as beta-carotene), folic acid, calcium, and fiber. While the calcium content of one serving doesn't equal that of a glass of milk, broccoli is an important calcium source for those who don't consume dairy products. Calcium does more than build strong bones. Research shows that this mineral may play a role in the control of high blood pressure, and it may work to prevent colon cancer. Beta-carotene and vitamin C are important antioxidants that have been linked to a reduced risk of numerous conditions, including cataracts, heart disease, and several cancers.

Today I thought to combine the Vitamin rich broccoli with protein rich egg.

Chop the broccoli florets into small pieces along with the small stalks.
Sauté green chillies and onions for 1 minute and add broccoli florets. Fry for 5 minutes by stirring in between. Sprinkle some water (about 10 – 20 ml) and cover the lid for 5 minutes. In the mean time, break the eggs into a bowl and add a pinch of salt and beat them well. Now pour the egg mixture over the broccoli and stir continuously until the egg is cooked. Remove from the fire and serve hot with roti.
