Broccoli Pakora


Broccoli pakoras are delicious and healthy North-Indian preparation – basically a twist to regular pakoras.

Time: 40 minutes


  • 1 2/3 cup broccoli
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 pinch baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon rice flour
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • salt as required
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 2/3 cup gram flour (besan)


  • Firstly, wash broccoli and place it over a chopping board. Cut the broccoli into florets and keep them aside.
  • Now, take a bowl and add gram flour, rice flour, chilli powder, baking soda and salt. Mix them well.
  • While stirring continuously, add water into the bowl and make a smooth paste.
  • Next, place a kadhai over medium flame and pour oil in it. Dip broccoli florets into the batter and coat them
  • properly. Once the oil is heated, add the coated broccoli florets into the kadhai and deep fry them.
  • On the other hand, place tissues onto a plate and transfer the bhajis onto this plate to remove excess oil from
  • bhajis. Serve hot!
