Ingredients

For :- Broccoli And Corn Patties

  • 1 Big fresh broccoli – 2 cups
  • 2 Medium sized red onions
  • 1 Large egg - optional
  • 1 Cup cheddar cheese
  • ½ Cup frozen corn kernels – defrosted & dried
  • 2 Cups breadcrumbs
  • Salt and Pepper as per the taste
  • Fresh Coriander Cilantro – Handful - if don’t like Coriander then its optional
  • Fresh Parsley Handful

For White Sauce :

  • 30 Gm butter
  • 30 Gm of plain flour
  • 3 Cups of milk
  • ½ Cup cheddar cheese - optional
  • Salt and Pepper for seasoning as per taste

Instructions

  1. Defrost the corn kernels and dry them on the kitchen paper towel.
  2. Blanch the broccoli florets for 1 minute and wash it with cold water and drain the water ( read above in the story, more explanation). Blitz the broccoli in the food processor or the hand mixer and keep it aside.

  3. Chop the onions, corn kernels, coriander and parsley in the food processor.
  4. Now mix all the above ingredients - Broccoli, onions, corn, coriander-parsley ,egg, cheddar cheese + breadcrumbs, ,salt ,pepper, check the seasoning. Use the fork and mix all the ingredients.

  5. With the help of a spoon, put some mixture in the middle of the palms and start rolling it. Press it gently to make it flat but still remains in a round shape.

  6. For Oven -Put it on the baking sheet Bake them for 20- 25 minutes until it becomes golden brown. Keep checking after 20 minutes. Sometimes Oven settings are different. 

    OR 

    To cook in a pan - Pour some oil in a pan, cook it on low medium heat, flip it when the other side cook ,let it cook through and remove it from the pan. Repeat this rolling step to finish it.

For White Sauce :-

  1. Put the butter in a thick bottom pan.
  2. When the butter starts melting, add flour and whisk vigorously. I like to use whisk instead of the spatula. It helps in making the sauce lump free.
  3. After couple of seconds, when the flour starts cooking, changes the color into light creamy color, it would look like a sticky batter. Start adding one third of the milk gradually and whisk vigorously to avoid the lumps. White sauce is all about whisking & whisking.
  4. I also like to take the pan off the stove in the middle of the process just to whisk it and put it back again after couple of minutes. It helps in whisking and does not burn.
  5. Whisk again vigorously and when the sauce starts turning thick & creamy in texture.
  6. Add the salt and pepper, cheddar cheese – Optional.
  7. Whisk it and serve it with the hot Broccoli Patties.

Recipe Notes

- Incase if there are any leftover patties , you could put them in the freezer in a zip-lock bag and use them for the burgers for the next time.
- Breadcrumbs – Incase if you don’t have breadcrumbs available in the house. You could make fresh breadcrumbs at home by grinding the brown bread/white bread in the food processor. I have used basic brown bread.
- If don't eat egg - egg could be optional
