BM #71 Week 1 Day 1 -
This week I have chosen to post some recipes with Broccoli as the main ingredient. These healthy cutlets qualify under the 'Snacks/Appetizers' Category.
Fortunately for us, there is no need to disguise broccoli as the kids are also fond of it. These cutlets were thoroughly enjoyed by all of us in the form of chaat with all the accomapniments.
Recipe Source Tarla Dalal
Broccoli finely minced 1 cup
Onion, finely chopped 1/4 cup
Potato, peeled, boiled and mashed 1/2 cup
Salt and green chili paste as needed
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Garlic minced 1/2 tsp)
Paneer crumbled 2 Tbsp
Salt and Chaat Masala as needed
Method Of Preparation -
In a heated pan, add oil and grated garlic. Saute for a few seconds and then add onion.
Saute onion until it turns golden brown. Add in the minced broccoli, salt and green chili and cook for a couple of minutes.
Remove from heat. Allow it to slightly cool. Add the mashed potato and mix well.
Prepare the filling by mixing the crumbled paneer, salt and chaat masala. Set aside.
Pinch a tablespoon of the broccoli mixture, flatten it a little, put in a little of the paneer filling and close the edges to form a dumpling with paneer as the filling. Slightly flatten it and shallow fry on a heated griddle.
Continue with the rest of the mixture.
Serve with chutneys of your choice. I served it as a chaat with green chutney, Date-tamarind chutney, onion, tomato, beaten yogurt and sev.
I also made another batch with no onion, no garlic and no spice for my little one and they were just as delightful. I just mixed the coarsely minced broccoli, mashed potato and crumbled paneer, added salt and chaat masala. Shaped them as cutlets and shallow fried them on the griddle.
