Baked Broccoli & Semolina Tater Tots

Tater tots are deep fried, grated potatoes served for starter or as a side. Usually prepared with potatoes, you can dish out this fantastic, dangerously addictive small bites with different vegetables. These tater tots are known very much for their cylindrical shape and crispy exterior. However tater tots can be baked as well if you want to make these deep fried beauties as a guilt free snacks. My today's recipe goes for Broccoli and semolina, yes you heard it rite, my own version of tater tots have semolina in it. I was supposed to cook and blog with two different ingredients which a fellow blogger suggested me to post under Fusion theme for this month's Shhh Cooking Secretly event started by me, which is now hosted by Mayuri Patel.

I took me a week to decide to go with this tater tots though initially i wanted to dish out a simple steamed cake with this both ingredients.

Also if you are looking for a simple and hassle free snacks, then give a try to this healthy broccoli tots. I went for baked ones, though deep frying makes super crispy tater tots too.
