Dry Curry, Sizzling Tastebuds

Lemony Broccoli Stir Fry | Easy stir fry recipes

For day
2 of lemon based dishes, I made something that we always liked but never got
around clicking the dish. This lemony broccoli stir fry is our family favourite
and it’s something that sure to perk up your day.I usually make lemon rasam, lemon pickle ,
lemon Sevai using Lemons. Today’s stir fry is an universal cuisine – you could
eat it as a salad or team it up with ridge gourd dal and rice like we did for
today’s dinner. Simple to make and yummy to taste. For those of my readers who
are fond of subtle lemony dishes, this is a winner.

Update : Once I served to my daughter (and she’ s a broccoli lover too), she said “Amma, the lemony taste swirls in my mouth… ” – what better compliment could a mom get 🙂

Sending this to Day 2 of BM 46 under Lemon Dishes theme
