BROCCOLI-MAYO CUTLETS


Broccoli belonging to the cruciferous family of vegetables has high amounts of fibre,protein,iron,calcium,magnesium and

vitamins like A,C,E,K,B with folic acid.

The negative side of this vegetable is that it causes, gas and bowel irritation.Those using blood thinning medications, should

take care in consuming broccoli, as the efficacy of the medication may be hindered.

I have given the pros and cons of this vegetable briefly, and will be moving to the proceeds of the recipe directly.

This recipe is made with steamed broccoli, mint mayo (homemade)breadcrumbs and a minimal amount of cheese.You could opt out

the mayonnaise and opt in any cheese of your choice if you like.

Instead of mint you could use spinach.Broccoli should be not be overcooked as you may lose the benefits in store.If you are steaming

or boiling 15-20 minutes is sufficient.

These crispy cutlets can be served as starters, or as an accompaniment with any meal.Good to slide in to a burger bun and serve as

snack and a quick lunch.

To the recipe

INGREDIENTS

Florets from a medium sized broccoli (steamed or boiled)

1 cup mayonnaise or cheese

a handful of mint leaves(ground)

1 onion chopped fine/spring onions

2-3 green chillies chopped

3-4 cloves garlic chopped fine

1-2 tsp chilli flakes

a pinch of mace powder

A cube of cheese ( any cheese )

1-2 tsp lime juice

1/2 cup breadcrumbs to bind broccoli

breadcrumbs for coating

1-2 eggs

oil for frying

METHOD

Mash the broccoli coarse and mix in the ingredients except the last 3 in the list.

MINT MAYONNAISE-CAULIFLOWER SALAD (link to homemade mayonnaise)

The consistency of the mixture should enable you to roll into cutlets.

Refrigerate for some time.

Dip in beaten eggs and coat with breadcrumbs and fry .

Deep fry till golden brown.

If you want to shallow fry you could make flattened cutlets.

Variation :Boiled or roasted minced meat could be added.

  1. Love broccoli so I’ll try this out as who doesn’t like anything fried 😋. Just one question, a cube of cheese? Does it go in the centre of each ball, grate it to add into the recipe………..
