  • Boil the broccoli in a pot with a generous amount of salted water. Boil until just tender, not soft.
  • Remove from pot. Transfer to a strainer to cool and dry.
  • In a large bowl, add the remaining ingredients (egg, flour, parmesan, salt, bukovo chili flakes). Mix with a hand whisk.
  • Add the broccoli florets and mash lightly with a potato masher. Do not mash completely, you still want to see small pieces of broccoli.
  • Mix the mixture with a spoon.
  • Add some olive oil or sunflower oil to a pan over medium heat. Add just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Carefully add tablespoons of the mixture to the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes on the first side. Flip and fry for another 1-2 minutes on the other side. They should be golden on both sides.
  • Remove fritters from the pan and place onto paper towels to drain from excess oil.
