How to Make Broccoli Pakodas

  • Break broccoli into bit-sized florets. Put them into boiling water for a minute.
  • Drain under tap water to cool.
  • Pat dry with a clean cloth and keep aside.
  • Put all flours in a mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients, except the oil.
  • Make batter by adding enough water, so that it coats the back of a spoon.
  • Heat oil to deep fry. Add a tbsp of hot oil to the batter and mix.
  • When oil is hot and smoky, dip each floret into the batter and slip it into the hot oil.
  • Repeat for as many florets as will comfortably fit in the hot oil.
  • Deep fry, stirring once or twice, till the pakodas are crisp and golden.
  • Drain and serve hot with ketchup or tomato salsa or even tamarind chutney.
