My daughter is a huge fan of broccoli. I usually make broccoli stir fry, so decided to try something different and made broccoli pakoras today. I didn't make them for snack though. I made them for lunch to accompany spinach moong dhal. This dhal and pakora combination really worked well.
What are the ingredients needed?
Broccoli florets, 2 cup
Besan flour, 1 cup
Corn flour, 1 tbs
Baking soda, a pinch
Chilli powder, 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder, 1 tsp
Turmeric powder, 1/4 tsp
Ginger garlic paste, 1 tsp
Asafoetida, a pinch
Salt, to taste
Oil, to deep fry
How it is made?
- In a bowl combine besan, corn flour, baking soda along with chilli powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, asafoetida , ginger garlic paste and add water and mix well to form a batter. (almost like a pancake batter)
- Then mix the broccoli florets in this batter, such that all the florets are covered well with batter on all sides.
- Heat oil in a skillet and deep fry them in batches till they turn golden brown.
- Remove them and drain them in paper towel and serve them.
