Brocolli Cabbage Tikki

Eating different vegetable give you wide range of vitamins and health benefits. Also there are some vegetables which are high in vitamins and less in calories like broccoli. But eating broccoli is like a nightmare for some people. Specially kids doesn't like to eat broccoli.

My Hubby Raj also doesn't like many vegetables, sadly broccoli is also one of them. But I try to make some or the other recipes so that he eats them without knowing the fact "He is actually having Brooocoli". While making I didn't even specify that I am making out of broccoli(or any vegetable he doesn't like). And after he loved it and finish the whole course then I burst the secret. he he he :-D. Anything for keeping your loved ones healthy .. Yuppie !


1 cup broccoli florets
1 cup Cabbage grated
2-3 tbsp caned chickpeas
1/2 cup Shallots chopped
1 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp dhana jeera powder
1 tsp red chili powder
pinch of turmeric powder
1/2 -1 cup whole wheat flour(Approximate)
salt to taste
1 tbsp oil


1. In a frying pan heat 1 tbsp oil. Add shallots onions and saute till golden brown.
2. Further add garlic paste, garam masala powder,turmeric powder, red chili powder and saute them for few minutes.
3. Then add broccoli,cabbage,chickpeas and salt. Mix well. Cook for few minutes till broccoli is tender. Now add dhana jeera powder and mix well.

4. Remove from heat and let it cool. In blender blend cooked broccoli mixture to a smooth paste

5. Knead broccoli paste and wheat flour to consistent dough. Add wheat flour little by little(Do not add too much). Make tikki like shapes .

6. Heat a non stick pan with 1 tbsp of oil and cook the tikkis. Let one side turn brown then the other.

7. Serve them hot with hot sauce,tomato ketchup or mint chutney or green chutney as per choice.

1.You can make variations to the recipe. Like by making a thick chickpea flour paste and dipping the broccoli balls in it and then frying them. Although this method takes in much oil.
2. You can make using boiled potato as it will act as binding agent and deepen in suji or breadcrumbs and shallow fry it.
