Cauliflower Fritters

I find that cauliflower is such a versatile veg. Besides being added into soups, curries and stir fried, cauliflower is a great choice as an ingredient for a fritter recipe. Rice flour produced a light and very crispy coating over the cauliflower whereas the chick pea flour on the other hand brought out another dimension of mild nutty taste. To spice up the fritters, I added in red chillies and ginger and of course coriander leaves are a must for the fragrant.  You can either served these fritters as an evening snack or as a side dish to go along with the rest prepared for the day. It does not matter when you would like to serve these fritters which are delicious once out of the frying pan and eaten almost immediately.  For a saucy touch, dip into some sour cream or any other as you would like to.

150g cauliflower - cut into medium size florets
4 tbsp chick pea/besan flour
2 red chillies  - remove seeds and choppedo
1 medium size (about 100g) red onion - chopped
1/2 inch ginger - remove skin and chopped
2 stalks coriander leaves - chopped
salt to taste
oil for frying

Add all of the ingredients except the caulis and oil into a mixing bowl.
Pour enough water and stir to get a thick runny batter. 
Heat oil and when heated, dip the caulis into the batter and deep fry.
Drain over kitchen towel to remove excess oil and serve immediately.
