South Indian Pakoras with Broccoli – A great appetizer or tea time snack recipe
What is Broccoli Pakora?
It is an Indian style deep fried broccoli fritters covered with gram flour, rice flour and spices mixture. They are crispy outside and soft inside. I have made them in South Indian style and they can be called Broccoli Bajji as well.
They are a great appetizer for any occasion. It can also be served with rice as a side dish.
