Broccoli Salt and Pepper Recipe

Broccoli Salt and Pepper

I tasted Broccoli Salt and Pepper at Taj Prego and that was the very first time I tasted Broccoli and loved it.It came as a side for Nethili fry and it was so good.That time I didn't know the recipe but after that I tasted the same dish at a buffet lunch recently and I could easily guess the ingredients and tried it the next day itself.If you don't like broccoli, try this for yourself am sure you will change your mind.

My Notes:

  • Don't overcook broccoli,just parboiling is enough.
  • You can add chopped spring onion at the final stage for extra flavour.
  • The batter should be thick and sticky.
  • Make sure to turn over and cook while deep frying for even cooking.
