Broccoli 65 (Broccoli Fritters)
Broccoli 65 is a delicious crisp fried appetizer made with broccoli, flour, corn starch and few spices. 65 recipes are popular in South Indian restaurants.
Take a bowl to add all the ingredients except oil & broccoli. I like to add equal amounts of all-purpose flour and cornstarch. But if you don't have flour, replace it with cornstarch alone.
Add water, mix it well. Make it medium-thick consistency batter, or make it as bajji mix consistency.
Add broccoli florets in the prepared batter, coat with the batter well. Please do not overcoat broccoli florets with batter. They become soggy.
Once the oil is hot, add broccoli and deep fry till golden brown & crisp on medium flame.
Garnish with fried green chili and curry leaves.
- Do not overcoat broccoli florets with batter, they become soggy.
- You can add food color, I used Kashmiri red chili powder to get color and taste.
- You can also make the same dish with cauliflower. It is called Gobi 65 or Cauliflower 65.
