A grilled appetiser that is easy to make, hard to resist, says Divya Nair. 

Ever since I saw the Broccoli Pops recipe online, I have been meaning to try it out myself. I finally did last week.

I made some tiny alterations to the original recipe which used eggs and chilli sauce.

Here's the tried-and-tested recipe:

Broccoli Pops

Broccoli Pops


  • 250 gm broccoli
  • 100 gm grated cheese
  • 1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 tsp finely chopped green chillies
  • 2 tbsp bread crumbs or all purpose flour
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat water in a deep bottomed pan. Add broccoli and boil for up to two minutes.
  • Drain the water and finely chop the broccoli.
  • In a pan, add broccoli, cheese, ginger garlic paste, chillies, salt and bread crumbs (or all purpose flour).
  • Add salt and bind them well to make a thick dough.
  • Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile pre-heat your oven to 150 degree.
  • Take out the broccoli dough and make small balls.
  • Grease grilling pan with some oil and arrange the broccoli pops.
  • Grill for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Serve hot with sauce of your choice.

Note: If you do not have an oven, you may also coat the broccoli balls with bread crumbs or oatmeal and fry them in oil. You may drain the excess oil using a tissue paper.
