Sky is the limit! You can actually transform this to make a creamy salad by stirring in some salad dressing. I also add some cheese and put it in between bread slices to make grilled sandwiches. No matter how you are going to serve it, this combination tastes delicious and is super healthy.

This broccoli corn recipe is our family favorite and makes way to the office and school boxed very often. Sometimes I also pack them with variety rice dishes like this lemon rice, mint rice or curd rice.

To save some time, you may use ready to use cleaned and cut up broccoli, corn and carrots from the chiller section. I usually prepare the veggies the previous night so it is easy to make this early in the morning for the Lunch boxes.

I use frozen sweet corn, you may use corn on the cob but you will need to precook them until tender. I cut up the broccoli florets and blanch them for a short period which is optional.

This recipe uses spices easily available like whole cumin seeds, garlic, Kashmiri red chilli powder and garam masala. If you want you may skip the cumin seeds and use ground cumin. To make it Chinese Style, skip the garam masala and add soya sauce. Replace red chilli powder with black pepper.
