About the Recipe
I love Broccoli and Mushroom combination and use these vegetables in my meals like in pulao or in with grilled veggie mix. I love meaty mushrooms with broccoli flavored with garlic and different seasoning or sauces(like Chinese Sauces or in Italian Seasoning). It makes a perfect meal that you can also have just like that without rice/noodles.
It is an Indo-Chinese style dish which is now a well known cuisine all over the world.
Indo Chinese style Broccoli and Mushrooms
Indo Chinese cuisine is the fusion of Indian and Chinese style of cooking, which was made famous by some Chinese migrants settled in Kolkata during the colonial era. They combined their Chinese style of cooking and some ingredients with the ingredients available in India and came up with this delicious Indo Chinese Cuisine. In India in short we call it Chinese Style also.
Ingredients to make Broccoli and Mushroom Stir Fry(Chinese Style)
The recipe is adaptable as you can add or substitute any veggies like bell peppers, beans or proteins like Paneer/Tofu as per your choice.
Broccoli- I prefer using fresh broccoli in the recipe. Choose bright green broccoli without any yellow florets. Check for worms in between the florets.
Mushrooms- I have used button mushrooms in the recipe. I also like using Oyster mushrooms in place of button mushrooms.
Herbs- Fresh Garlic(minced or finely chopped), Incase you run out of garlic then you can use 1 tsp of garlic powder in the recipe.
Sauces- Soy Sauce, Siracha/Garlic Chilli Sauce, Vinegar(use any good plant vinegar). I also like to add a tbsp of tomato ketchup. It is totally optional. You can use Tamari Sauce for Gluten-free version.
Spices- Black pepper, Chilli fakes, Brown sugar, Oil, salt to taste.
Add check carefully as the sauces are already salty.
Others- Sesame Seeds for garnish.
Benefits of Broccoli and Mushroom
Broccoli and mushrooms are very nutritious options for vegetarians and vegans.
Mushrooms are full of antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and proteins. If you are not allergic to mushroom these are the best option for vegans to substitute proteins that come from meat and dairy. Roasting, grilling and stir frying are the best ways to cook mushroom. These are also added to curries like in Kadhai Mushroom
Broccoli is low in calorie, rich source of Vitamin K and C and folate along with potassium. The best way to have broccoli is to stir fry, roast or steam it. Boiling can leach if off from the it's essential nutrients
