Friday eve is that point of the week when we pamper ourselves with some self-care and play preferred programs on OTT platforms. Are you a foodie? Then nothing tastes better than a plateful of desired snacks. Therefore, for your Friday binge, Executive Chef Avanish Jain, Holiday Inn Chandigarh Zirakpur, shares two delightful snack recipes that are yummy, easy, and will make you feel brighter.
Tandoori Malai Broccoli
Broccoli is a superfood, and unlike gobi or cauliflower, this Indian-style grilled broccoli has many bites. It's also filling because of the fibrous structure. Broccoli can be roasted in a tandoor or oven. Yoghurt and malai (fresh cream) are used in the marinade, which keeps the kebabs moist. So there you have it, the delectable Malai Broccoli recipe.
