Broccoli is a wonderful vegetable rich in antioxidants and is commonly available in India. I recently came to know that broccoli is grown in Ooty too.
We had around two kilograms of broccoli , I was searching for recipes what to make. On a rainy day , my mom made this tasty fritters.
Akshara , my little Niece was just around ten month old. She picked the fritters and just licked with tongue as she don’t have teeths at the time.
It tasted similar to cauliflower fritters and was so tasty. I had read that broccoli are rich in Iron content.
1 whole Broccoli
2 cup Besan flour
1 cup corn flour
1 cup rice flour
2 tbs chilli powder
1 tbs Ginger Garlic Paste
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
In a bowl , add the besan flour , corn flour and rice flour , mix well.
Add in the chilli powder ,salt and ginger garlic paste and mix again.
Wash the broccoli and cut into florets and wash in the luke warm water to remove any worms.
Add the broccoli florets into the flour mixture and combine , sprinkle little water so the flour mixture will coat on the broccoli florets .
Let it rest for half an hour to one hour.
Heat oil in a pan and fry the broccoli florets in a medium flame till the florets become golden brown and crisp.
Broccoli fritters are ready to serve.
