Instructions

Instructions for Stove Top:

  • Boil, peel and mash potatoes using a masher or a fork.
  • Steam broccoli florets, let it cool slightly. Add broccoli into a food processor, pulse couple of times.  I like to keep it little course, mix of chunks. Alternatively, you could chop the broccoli using a knife.

  • Add all the dry spices, cumin seeds, fresh cilantro and salt to taste. Combine the mixture, to form a soft dough.
  • Divide the dough, into 10 equal portions.

Notes

1. The ingredients combine well to form a soft dough. If the dough is too soft to shape into patties, add some bread crumbs. Bread crumbs help absorb extra moisture, thus making the dough workable.
2. These make excellent make ahead party appetizer recipe also. Make it a day before the party. You can make these into patties shape and pan fry just before your guests arrive. Or simply reheat these the next day, works just fine.
3.These Broccoli Potato Patties / Broccoli Aloo Tikki make great lunches too. Serve it on a bun and you have veggie Broccoli Potato burger or make a sandwich out of these.
4. Steam broccoli for 30-60 secs, it should have some crunch to it.
