Broccoli - Potato Cutlet | Broccoli Patties | Broccoli Tikki

 Broccoli is one of our family favourite vegetables. Kiddos love it because of the color and we, adults love it for its health benefits. I heard a few people won't like this vegetable for its distinct smell. But we love every dish prepared using broccoli. 

3 years back, my Mum and Dad were here with us for a few months. During that time, buying vegetables was not that easy for us as many vegetables we get here are totally different from what they get in India. When we go out for groceries, mum eyes usually look for only those veggies which are available in hometown! To my surprise, they both liked broccoli and she used to prepare Broccoli Stir Fry (Palya) 2 - 3 times a week during their stay. 

I would like to share the recipe of Broccoli - Potato Cutlet / Broccoli Patties with you all today. These patties are perfect for breakfast, snacks, starter and kids lunch box too. Below is the recipe of Broccoli - Aloo Cutlets:
