Potato & Broccoli Tikki

Broccoli is an excellent source of  Vitamin K , C, E and B 6. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, magnesium, protein, calcium, omega 3 fatty acids and iron. On the other hand Potato is also rich in Vitamin B 6 and C.

 My family loves potato and  broccoli has been in our diet since few years now. My daughter who is a picky eater removes broccoli aside from the dish. I started adding some grated broccoli in potato paratha which is one of her favorite. For some extent I was successful in feeding her broccoli. Yesterday I had some potato and broccoli paratha stuffing left out. Instead of making parathas again, I have added some bread crumbs to it and made  tikkis / cutlets with them. Believe me my kids didn't even know there was broccoli in it. It would make a great after school snack or can be packed in  lunch box for kids. 

This recipe goes to week 3, day 1 of Blogging Marathon 98 under the theme " Kids Delight - School Closure - Snacks / Bites". Here goes the recipe..........


Boiled potatoes 3
Broccoli Florets 2 cups
Chopped coriander leaves 1/2 cup
Turmeric powder 1/2 spoon
Cumin powder 1/2 spoon
Crushed red chili 1 spoon
Lemon juice 1 spoon
Salt to taste
Bread crumbs 1/2 cup
Oil for shallow frying


Boil 2 cups water, once the water comes to boiling point add the broccoli florets  and give it a stir.
Leave it for 30-40 seconds and switch off flame. 
Let sit for 10 minutes and drain water.
In a chopper add the florets and crush them ( do not make it paste )
If you do not have chopper, use grater to grate the broccoli.
In a mixing bowl add boiled potato, grated broccoli, chopped cilantro, cumin powder, crushed chili, salt, turmeric powder, lemon juice and bread crumbs.

Mix everything well and set aside for 5 minutes.
Heat non stick tawa  and add some oil.

Grating the broccoli makes them invisible in dishes and it is easier to serve kids. The tikkis look fabulous.
