How To Make Mustard Charred Broccoli

  1. Trim broccoli stems, then cut away from heads. Peel stems and slice lengthwise into ¼"-thick planks. Break up heads into large florets. Cook florets and stems in a large pot of boiling salted water until bright green and crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain, then transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool. Drain and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Whisk yogurt, olive oil, mustard, chili powder, chaat masala, cumin, and turmeric in a large bowl. Add broccoli and toss to coat; season with salt.
  3. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat; oil grate. Grill broccoli, turning occasionally, until it's charred in spots, 5–7 minutes.

Perfect with Mango Paneer Kebabs
