Pro-Tips:

1. The cooking time will vary depending upon the size of your florets and the type of your oven.

2. Always check inside after a few minutes when Airfrying.

3. I cooked the broccoli in 3 batches. Make sure you don’t overcrowd them so that they get enough place to cook properly.

3. You can eliminate the cream cheese and use more hung curd or yogurt if you want the recipe to be healthier. I used Amul cheese spread in the recipe.

4. You can try the same recipe with baby corn.
