This recipe requires only two ingredients namely: broccoli and psyllium husks powder. The psyllium husks powder acts as the binding agent. Psyllium husk is a type of fibre processed from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant's seeds.
Psyllium is also known as ispaghula and it is notable for its laxative power. Interestingly, researchers have proven that psyllium consumption is beneficial to the human body.
