  • 2 cups broccoli florets loosely packed
  • 1 tsp pepper corns
  • 1.5 tbsp maida
  • 3 tbsp cornflour
  • 2 tsp garlic finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp big onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup capsicum cubed I used colored ones
  • 1 tsp tomato sauce
  • salt to taste


  • Boil water, when it starts to boil add cleaned broccoli florets along with salt and cook for 1 minute.Drain water and set aside,
  • Powder pepper corns, I used my hand mortar and pestle.In a mixing bowl add maida and cornflour along with 1/4 tsp pepper powder and salt.Sprinkle little water to make a paste.Add cooked broccoli florets to it and toss it well, the batter should just coat the florets.
  • Heat oil in a kadai, drop few pieces and deep fry till crisp and it turns golden at the edges.Drain in tissue paper.Deep fry the remaining florets, drain in tissue paper and set aside.
  • In a pan heat oil, add chopped garlic let it fry for a minute then add onion, capsicum saute for 2mins, it should be crunchy.Now add remaining pepper powder,salt to taste and tomato ketchup.
  • Mix well , now add fried broccoli and toss it well.
  • Serve hot as a starter or with phulka!


  • 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.
