Broccoli Pancakes

Broccoli Pancakes

My family don't like broccoli. But as this vegetable is very healthy I want to use it in some or other way in my food. So I simple boil them in salt water and add in salad. My kid don't like to have it too. So started goggling broccoli recipes and I came across this tasty broccoli pancakes. I am very happy with these pancakes as my kid love them. We can have them as  breakfast or snack.

Broccoli Pancakes
Yield : 8 to 9 (may vary depending on size)
Prep Time : 10 min
Cook time : Less than  25 min
  • 1 large head broccoli
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped onion
  • 1 chili or 1 teaspoon chili paste (as per taste)
  • 1 large garlic clove, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or olive oi
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour or multi grain wheat
  • salt as per taste
  • 1 large egg or 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup milk (If needed add more)
  • 1/2 tsp pepper o as per taste


  • Cut the florets of the broccoli and cut the large ones in half so they are all more or less the same size.  Save the stalks along with any remaining florets to use in soup or a vegetable stir-fry.
  • Boil 1/2 cup water in a medium pan, then drop in the broccoli florets, cover, and let steam, for 3 minutes. Strain in a colander.
  • Put the steamed broccoli, onions, chili and garlic in a food processor and pulse on and off to chop (do not puree the vegetables), or chop by hand. Transfer the chopped ingredients to a mixing bowl and flour, pepper, and salt. Add the egg or egg whites and milk and mix thoroughly with a spoon.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat, pour 1 tsp oil and spread it. Drop tablespoons of the batter into the hot skillet and cook over low to medium heat on both sides until they turn golden brown.
  • Serve hot with any sauce of your choice.
