Hello friends
Welcome to ''my cuisine''. According to me cuisine or the culinary art is just that an art. The art of creating delicious foods with a conscience to health has various dimensions with which we can experiment and I have just started to experiment in my kitchen. There is nothing more heartwarming than a hot aroma filled food on a cold rainy day to cheer us up or nothing more satisfactory than satisfying the taste buds of our loved and dear ones.This was the reason i found my new love for cooking. Hope you would enjoy my various recipes......

veggie fritters

This is an easy and tasty snack which can be made real quick. I got this from Sainsbury's recipes. Am not a huge fan of broccoli but had bought one on a whim and clearly had no idea on how to cook it. So decided to give this recipe a try and has become my dh and dd's absolute favourite.


  • Broccoli - 1 small (cut into florets)
  • Cauliflower - 1/2 cauliflower (cut into florets)
  • Cumin powder - 2 tsps 
  • Plian flour - 100 gms
  • Fresh corriander - 1 tsp (finely chopped)
  • Garlic - 2 (crushed)
  • Spring onions - 6 (finely chopped)
  • Eggs - 2 
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp or to taste
  • Oil - for frying
  • Boil the broccoli and cauliflower florets for about 20 minuutes until soft. Drain well and then mash.
  • In a mixing bowl combine plain flour, ground cumin, chopped corriander, garlic and spring onions. Add the beaten eggs, combine with the vegetables and mix well.
  • Heat the oil to a medium high heat. Fry large spoonfuls of mixture until cooked through and golden on both sides. 
  • Serve hot with sweet chilli dip.
You can add chilli powder to the recipe if you want slightly spicy fritters for adults but it really is not a necessity. 
A very good and yummy method to make your kids eat broccoli.
