Stir through the garam masala and lemon juice.
To make the tarka, heat a wok or frying pan and add the broccoli with 100ml of water. Cook on a high heat until the water has evaporated. Add the vegetable oil and then the mustard seeds, cumin, coriander and chilli. Fry for 4-5 minutes until the broccoli is charred but still has a crunch.
