I am not a big fan of Broccoli. But after knowing the nutrient information of broccoli, I thought of trying recipes with Broccoli. My hubby and my second kid loves broccoli a lot. Broccoli is rich in fibres and vitamin C. Broccoli manchurian is an Indo-chinese appetizer. Adapted the recipe from Sanjeev Kapoor site. it can be taken as a side dish to pulao or fried rice. It can also be served as appetizer. This is one of a easy way to make kids eat broccoli. Please check below for the detailed step wise instructions and pictures for preparing Broccoli Manchurian.

  1. I just made this for the first time today. Pretty darn tasty. A little more work than I'm used to but definitely worth it. This would also be great with freshly steamed broccoli mixed in with the patties for colour and nutrition. When you write "corn flour" I think you mean "corn starch". Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
