Of all Broccoli Recipes i loved this Indo Chinese broccoli preparation"Broccoli Manchurian". Today i made this Broccoli Manchurian for lunch and I wanted to post today itself that much tasty. I found hard to resist from taking a bite even before preparing the gravy. I started eating fried broccolis and worried am  i able to complete this dish. I loved this Broccoli Manchurian than Gobi Manchurian.

       Irresistible taste. So yummy with fried rice or rotis and parathas. So juicy tasty broccolis. I am sure people who dislike broccoli would too find it delicious. So tasty fried broccolis can be served as a appetizer or snack that itself. I have used here yellow capsicum to make the dish little colourful. You can use green capsicum too for this recipe.
