Sarsonwaali Grilled Broccoli ( Mustard flavored grilled Broccoli)

Best Blogger Tips
Travelling across the globe for work has never made me miss home so much as it did this time. The reason was simple. December is the time to be in Delhi. The weather is perfect to grill out and spend time with close friends. Nothing can beat some nice cold weather and a group of friends huddled around the grill, cooking and talking. Moreover, the atmosphere is so festive that staying away can seem like a punishment.
When it comes to grilling, vegetarians typically tend to get a little ignored. While you take pains to make something new with the meat and chicken products, vegetarians are given the same tandoori paneer, gobhi and stuffed aloo dish everytime. It is a little different for me though. Having a better half who is vegetarian makes me ensure I have a menu planned out for her in detail. While sampling some vegetarian items for the upcoming new year'e eve, I tried out a little brocolli. Must say, it was a refreshing change from the usual fare of tandoori bharwan aloos and paneer tikka's.

I have never barbequed broccoli. Pinnapples, red bell peppers, zuccini, but never broccoli. This I have to try in the spring, when we start b'bquing. I am jealous you can b'bque in winters in Delhi. :)
Wish you and your family a very happy new year.

Lemme know how it turns out Sangeeta. The blanching is done, so that it doesnt stay on the grill much longer...tends to dry out the broccoli.
This was the first time for me too Jaya. It turned out just fine.
Happy New Year to you and your near ones.
