Broccoli Rice Using Maggie Noodles Masala

Broccoli is one of the healthy veggie which is high in Vitamin C and Fiber. Earlier it was a very expensive veggie and used to find only in super markets but nowadays, even small veggie shops has such type of healthy n unique veggies. Lots of delicious recipes can be prepared using Broccoli like Rice, curries, soups and parathas etc.

 Broccoli Rice is one of the easy and healthy recipe which can be prepared using leftover rice and no extra spices required for this recipe. Just a small packet of leftover maggie Noodles masala will enhance the flavor of the rice and gives unique taste. Adding lemon juice is to balance the taste and flavor. I have used maggie masala but any noodles masala can be used for this rice. Perfect Lunch box menu and can be served with Tomato sauce, chilli sauce or any Raita.
