Once your protein is well coated with the spices and has cooked some, add your broccoli and celery and mix all the ingredients together well.

Then cover and let cook for 8-10 minutes on medium to low heat. You can add 1 tablespoon water if your base is too dry so as not to burn your mixture.

Dilute your tablespoon of the SVA Sweet Orange Mango chutney with a little water in a bowl and add to your dish and mix it in thoroughly. Then add the chopped sweet basil leaves, cover and turn off the heat and let it sit for 2-3 minutes.

 

Step 5:

You can sprinkle a few drops of olive oil on top and your dish is ready to serve. You can serve with a side of steamed rice, or quinoa, or Vaidya’s favorite: the mix of 50% rice with 50% quinoa. Enjoy!
