Broccoli & Egg Whites Stir Fry December 7, 2010

Broccoli is a very nutritional vegetable. Until few years ago, I did not like the vegetable and seldom cooked it at home. Once I acquired it’s taste, I like it very much and don’t mind making it at home once in a while. I usually steam it or just saute it in some oil with salt, pepper and some garlic. Lately, I have been making quick stir fry with basic Indian spices and some tomato, to make broccoli  more  flavorful. To make this stir fry even more healthier, I add some boiled egg whites to the fry. Egg whites are mostly for U, who loves eggs & meats, and is trying to eat healthy. Broccoli and egg whites stir fry is certainly a one healthy side dish to go with plain rice!

Cabbage Salad February 14, 2010

I made cabbage salad and grilled salmon for lunch today. Not in a mood to write much today and getting straight to the recipe.

Bowl of Cabbage Salad.

Print Recipe


  • 1 1/2 tsp Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Garlic crushed
  • 3/4 cup Red Onion sliced and diced
  • 2 Green Chilies chopped or 1 – 2 tsp chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup Broccoli or 10-15 small florets
  • 2 1/2 cups Cabbage (I used old fashioned cabbage & extra carrots coleslaw)


  • Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds.  When cumin splutters, add green chilies and garlic.  Saute for a few seconds and add onion.
  • Saute for a few seconds and add salt and broccoli florets.
  • Saute for a minute.  Add cabbage and mix well for about a minute, until the tempering coats the cabbage.
  • Cover the pan and turn off the heat.  Let it sit for 5 minutes.  Cabbage  will continue to cook by the steam generated by covering the pan.
  • Serve hot or cold.  I prefer it hot.


  • I used broccoli in the salad today but I didn’t quite like it. Cabbage and broccoli did not go well and will skip it the next time I make it.
  • Last time I made this salad, added some celery and it was good.
