Calories 81kcal


  • ¾ cup chickpea flour (garbanzo bean flour)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Pepper
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 bunch broccoli florets (1 ½ cups after steaming and chopping)
  • vegetable oil

Lemon Mayo (optional)


  • Mix dry ingredients. Add water, whisk until mixed thoroughly.
  • Steam broccoli. Chop until tender. Chop into tiny pieces. Fold into chickpea flour mixture. Mix well.
  • Add enough oil to a hot pan to coat it. (This is a shallow fry.) You can tell the pan is hot enough when you drizzle a few drops of water and the water sizzles. Add broccoli fritter batter, a tablespoonful at a time, and fry on both sides until browned. 
  • Serve with Lemon Mayo or another dip.
