I made this recipe from Jean Carper’s “Complete Healthy Cookbook.” The original recipe had cauliflower, and only eggs, cheese, and bread crumbs but I tweaked it a little bit by using broccoli instead of cauliflower and adding some chili powder and ginger-garlic paste along with the cheese. The result was so tasty. This can go as a healthy starter for any party. I have used bread crumbs from whole wheat bread in this case. No oil is used here; the only fat present is from the egg. Here goes the recipe:

Broccoli, 1 big head.
Parmesan cheese, 3 tablespoons.
Eggs, 2.
Bread crumbs, 1 cup.
Ginger-garlic paste, 1 teaspoon.
Chili powder, 1 teaspoon.
Salt as per taste.

Wash the broccoli and cut it into small florets. Take a plate and put the bread crumbs on to the plate. Mix the bread crumbs with 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon chili powder and keep aside. Take a bowl and break 2 eggs into the bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of ginger-garlic paste, 1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon of salt to the eggs and beat everything well. Take a baking dish and spray it some oil. Take a broccoli floret and immerse it in the egg mixture. Then take the floret and coat it with the bread crumb mixture and place it on the baking sheet. Repeat the same procedure with the remaining florets. Bake them at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes until they turn golden-brown and crispy. Serve hot with tomato sauce.
