Inspiration from "Alex's Day Off" and our desire to learn Indian cooking, this recipe is a delicious way to eat broccoli (for kids and adults!).


  • 1.25 cups AP flour
  • 1 Tbs turmeric
  • 1 Tbs ground coriander
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbs canola oil (6 cups for frying)
  • 1 beer (room temperature)
  • 1 head of broccoli


  • 1. In a medium bowl, sift together flour and spices.
  • 2. Add canola oil and whisk in beer to the flour/spice mixture (set in a warm place to puff up)
  • 3. Wash and dry 1 head of broccoli. Then, stem and trim into bite size pieces.
  • 4. Heat oil in a large pot to 345-355 degrees F.
  • 5. Stir batter to check consistency (should coat broccoli lightly-add water or flour as needed)
  • 6. Drop several pieces into oil. When golden brown on all sides, remove to drying rack (baking sheet and cooling rack with paper towels) and sprinkle with Kosher salt.
