Fried Broccoli

Broccoli is a vegetable with a thick green stem and several dark green flower heads or florets coming from that one main stem. It looks like cauliflower but different in color.

Fried broccoli maybe not the healthiest way to cook broccoli, it just give us alternative when sometime we get bored with steamed broccoli or another choice for people who don’t like eating and smelling green vegetables.

The composition of flours and spices I wrote here is still kind of try and error experiment. The change of the ingredients below is quite possible.


250 g Broccoli
4½ tablespoons wheat flour (high protein)
4 tablespoons rice flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons ground Coriander
2 teaspoons ground White pepper
2 large organic eggs
Cooking oil (deep frying is better)


Cut the florets, as big or as small as you want. But remember, the thinner you cut, the more they interact with cooking oil so that their nutrition remains less.

Wash in running water and soak it for about 5 minutes, clean it if there are some worms.

Crack the eggs in a bowl. Mix homogenously with ½ teaspoon ground coriander, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon ground white pepper.

Set a plate for mixing spicy flour. Pour rice flour and wheat flour into it. Mix both of them. Then add 1½ teaspoons salt, 1½ teaspoons ground coriander, and 1½ teaspoons ground white pepper. Mix it homogenously.

Immerse the floret with spicy eggs. Take it out then cover it with mix spicy flour. Dip in spicy eggs once more then cover it again with the mix spicy flour.

Set the cooking oil on the medium heat. Then just fry, take out from the oil when they turn into golden color. Drain the remaining cooking oil. Serve for snack or appetizer.
