Broccoli 65 / Broccoli Pakora – Fuss Free Snacks

Broccoli 65 / Broccoli Pakora – Fuss Free Snacks




Fried Broccoli Krispies:

You know what? Why fried food is so popular among many immigrant communities? One could get really creative to add their special flavor’ ranging from soy sauce to garam masala and instantly get that native-country touch:) If you are looking for a healthy option…you should really try stir-frying! This isn’t a good idea to fry vegetables! Yet, if you are planning to have a variation…this is it! Its pretty damn good. Am so tired of eating those steamed broccoli from the restaurants. I decided to fry this on a snowy-stormy-dark evening…when I had nothing useful to do, hehe. Well, I followed some discipline’ frying upon one condition…using extra-virgin olive oil! We all do some trick to take away the guilt, right. Did I ever tell you this little secret of mine? Anything that is dark green and bit bitter-tasting, like Kale, Bitter melon, Broccoli etc…all achieve an unique flavor when treated with olive oil. I know, the olive oil itself has its own flavor and all. But still it kicks up some extra-effect with bitter-tasting greenish produce. Anyway, you guys try this experiment and let me know’ if you like it(or if you don’t)!

Ingredients:

Broccoli 2-3 heads
Ginger 2″ minced
Garlic 3 cloves minced
Salt
MSG 1/4 Spoon
Soy sauce few spoons
Lemon juice few spoons
Corn flour few spoons
Chili powder 2 spoons
White pepper powder 1 spoon
Garam masala powder 1/4 spoon
Olive oil for pan/deep frying

Method:

Combine all the ingredients together(except oil).

Heat oil in a deep frying pan. When it comes to smoky hot, fry few florets at a time. Leave them over kitchen tissues for a while. Repeat the same for each batch.

Serve steaming hot with Indian Masala Chai. And you know the rest…enjoy:)
