Broccoli and Potatoes in spicy Coconut Milk

We all come in to this world with our own baggage and destiny. May be the series of events which we call life are all predetermined and we just play it along. We may have no control over what is meant to happen, but we do have control over how we react to what is happening right now. We do have the ability to believe in our selves and work hard towards what we want to achieve. May be all the hard word, blood, sweat and tears will change our destiny. May be with faith in our selves and our abilities we can re write our destiny. I like to believe it can be done.

Just like life, food has its own destiny. Some ingredients are destined to be together. They have to wait patiently until they are brought together through some sort of culinary karma. It was one of those weekend mornings when I woke up feeling like contributing to some culinary karma.

Broccoli and potatoes are like the match made in heaven, add to it some spice and coconut milk, you will end up with the best tasting karmic experience of your life.

2 cups of Broccoli - steamed

1 cup of peeled, boiled and cubed potatoes

1 tsp of grated ginger

2 cloves of minced garlic

1 tsp of fresh ground black pepper

1 tsp of cumin powder

1 tsp of coriander powder

1 tsp of red chili flakes

1 cup of coconut milk and 1/2 cup of water


Heat a pan with about a tsp of olive oil.

When the oil is hot, add the ginger and garlic.

Next, add the Potatoes and Broccoli.

Let them cook for a minute, add the spices - Black pepper, Cumin and coriander powder.

Stir it together and add the coconut milk and water.

Cover the pan and let it come to a boil - about 4-5 minutes.

The dish is simple, yet is bursting with flavors that make you happy inside out.
