Broccoli Capsicum Sabji - Side dish for roti, nann & rice

Broccoli and capsicum Sabji - a super tasy side dish with broccoli made with our spices. After eating stir fried broccoli at Chinese restaurants, I tried making dishes with broccoli using our masalas and spices. Broccoli is not a favourite vegetable for many of us, but you have to include it because of its health benefits. But if you cook the broccoli perfectly, it tastes really  good.
