The Broccoli and Paneer Tikki is a simple yet innovative starter that’ll brace the tummy for an exciting meal!

Featuring a healthy blend of ingredients like antioxidant-rich broccoli, calcium-rich paneer and fibre-rich oats, this starter tastes so fabulous that it does not feel like a health food, but like a peppy starter just right to fire off a fabulous meal.

To add to all the points in its favour, this tikki is not deep-fried, but cooked in a non-stick tava with minimal oil. Definitely a must-try!

   If you are not looking for a healthy recipe, then you can try using maida or cornflour.

Having heard and read so much about the benefits of Brocolli, it was a must buy ingredient in the veg shopping list...and used to wilt & spoil due to ignorance till I made these easy wheezy very tasty tikkis! Now my comfort level with using brocolli has gone high and I am using it fresh for a healthy zest..Thanks
