“This is a healthy vegetable recipe from the famous Indian chef, Sanjeev Kapoor. Broccoli aint one of my favourite veggies nor is tofu. I like cauliflower and paneer(Indian cottage cheese) instead and wouldn't hesitate to try this recipe using those as substitutes. I hope you enjoy it any which ways!”
