If you’re a fan of Lok Lok (steamboat-style food served on a skewer, usually sold by mobile trucks on the street), then you must’ve stumbled upon Deep Fried Broccoli.
Although it might not necessarily be as nutritionous than boiling or steaming, trust us, the broccoli is going to taste really GOOD. Crispy, delicious and so easy to make — perfect to be eaten as appetiser or when you have the munchies.
Plus, it’s only gonna take you about 15-20 minutes, so let’s take a look:
1 Broccoli, washed
300ml Vegetable oil (around 1/3 of 1 liter)
200g Flour of your choice
1 teaspoon Paprika (optional)
1 teaspoon Herbs of your choice (optional)
Salt and pepper
1. Wash the broccoli and cut into small pieces, like mini steak or bouquets.
2. In a bowl — add egg, flour, paprika, herbs, salt and pepper. Whisk the batter until smooth.
3. Heat oil in a small pot (use a smaller pot for a little use of oil).
4. Dip the broccoli pieces in the batter and coat them well.
5. When the oil gets super hot, deep fry the broccoli bites in batches around 3 minutes each. Turn them once until golden brown. Drain on paper towels/wire rack.
6. Serve the broccoli bites with dipping sauce of your choice, or enjoy them just like that!
Note: You can also deep fry cauliflower using this recipe, which would taste almost similar to broccoli.
