Unlock the full potential of broccoli by using its often-discarded stems in this recipe. The result is a delectable and quick-to-make dish that will become a staple at your home.

To achieve a thick and creamy gravy, I like to use a lot of onions for this recipe as they make the gravy very thick and creamy. It also cuts on the bitterness of the greens.

I like to cube the paneer into small pieces so you get a small piece of the creamy paneer in every bite.

I have used coconut milk at the end for that little ectra richness to the gravy. You can also add a little dairy cream. If you are watching your calories, you can also omit it altogether.

1 tablespoon vegetable oil (divided)

  1. Hello Suguna: Thank you for this recipe. Wonder if a quantity of turmeric can be added at any stage of the cooking. Thanks, Dido.

  2. I made this recipe today and did a few minor modifications – added 1/4tsp garam masala to the broccoli spinach mix at the last step before cooling and grinding it. Other than that, followed the exact recipe and it came out really good. I love sneaking veggies into recipes to get that additional nutritive boost.
