Thori Chutney Recipe
These green broccoli cakes are a wonderful alternative to the humble aloo tikki (potato cakes).They have a lovely light flavour and look bright and vibrant too. The spiced broccoli mixture is so delicious I sometimes have that as a little side dish on its own too.
I think it's a great way to get some greens into the kids too especially if you let them make their own patty (and you might want to give the chillies a miss too). Very simple to make just shred the broccoli add a few spices and stir through with some potatoes. They are a lovely way to get kids eating up their greens too, just miss the chillies out.
The broccoli is finely chopped and cooked with ground cumin, coriander and some chaat masala for some zing (you can add a squeeze of lemon juice instead). Cooked fluffy potatoes are then stirred into the spiced broccoli mixture and then you make some little patties.
I like to pan fry these on a gentle heat to get a wonderful crisp brown colour to them. They are fairly delicate so don't fry too many in the same pan. They are great with a chilli tomato chutney as a fun little starter.
These make a great starter dish served with a dollop of warming chilli tomato chutney.
