Deep-Fried Breaded Broccoli Flower + Tonkatsu
-Dasmariñas Village, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines-
with the Family
For dinner, I started by making a simple mini tonkatsu.
Yesterday, I had received an unexpected gift of fresh broccoli from KF, which inspired me to try something new.
Having successfully deep-fried broccoli stems before (see 11.061 Deep-Fried Broccoli Stems), I used the leftover ingredients from the tonkatsu to make breaded deep-fried broccoli florettes (or “broccoli flower,” as KF would likely call them).
The breading added a nice crisp. But I wasn’t convinced that it was worth the effort. Certainly, if the breadcrumbs and eggwash weren’t already available, I wouldn’t bother.
