Broccoli Mappas / Broccoli in Creamy Coconut Sauce


Mappas is a popular side dish in Kerala. You can make vegetarian or non vegetarian mappas like chicken, beef, mutton, fish, eggs, vendakka (ladies finger), kadachakka (bread fruit)potato, cauliflower or even mixed vegetables. I make broccoli mappas often as this is the only broccoli dish I like. Try this broccoli side dish in creamy coconut milk and serve with chapathi, appam, Idyappam, bread or boiled rice.
