Broccoli and potato are different in every way, from the flavour and appearance to the texture. Interestingly, the two combine very well to make a scrumptious starter.
The two veggies are perked up with soy sauce, ginger, garlic and other typical, readily-available oriental ingredients, batter coated and deep fried.
The outcome is a fantabulous starter that is attractively crunchy outside and comfortingly soft inside. You are sure to enjoy this contrast in the Broccoli and Potato Balls.
Broccoli and Potato Balls also make a great party snack to serve for High Tea Party
