Arrabiata with Mince and Margherite

Broccolli and Mushroom with Yogurt sauce



Broccoli is available everywhere in Pune  but I think its a waste to use it as an ingredient for Indian food.It tastes best steamed lightly and served almost plain with a sauce. Try this for a quick accompaniment to something like Shepherds pie-


350 gm broccoli

200 gm button mushrooms

 1/2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp mayonaise

2 tbsp yogurt/dahi

1 tbsp milk

1 tsp lemon juice.

Salt and pepper to taste


Steam the broccoli, Saute mushrooms in the butter for 2 minutes. Do not overdo or let the water release from the mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper.Remove to a dish and cover with steamed and seasoned broccolli

Mix the mayonnaise, the yogurt  and the milk and heat on a low fire.Add the lemon juice at the end. Pour the sauce over the brocolli and mushrooms and serve warm.
