  • Salt to taste
  • Red pepper flakes to taste
  • 3 tbsp cooking oil

Steam the coarsely chopped broccoli in microwave for about 10 mins minutes (covered with lid) with few tbsp of water until its semi soft. Stir in between while steaming. Drain and cool.

In a separate bowl, lightly beat your egg. Add the flour, ginger, garlic, salt, and cumin. Then, add the cooled broccoli into the bowl, stir or fold the ingredients together. Adjust seasonings to taste. If the mixture seems too dry, add few drops of water.You should be able to mold the mixture into the shape of patties. Prepare the patties according to your choice of size.

Heat a large, heavy skillet over moderate heat. Once hot, add about 2 to 3 tablespoons and spread through the skillet. Once the oil is hot, place the prepared patties on skillet and flatten it slightly with your spoon or spatula. Cook on low flame. Once brown underneath, about 2 to 3 minutes, flip each patties and cook on the other side until equally golden, about another 2 to 3 minutes.

Once done, transfer to a serving plate. These patties can be served with any chutney of your choice, or with sour cream.
