No, no. Not the same as the previous Cauliflower Fritters. Trust me, it is not. But I must admit some similarities in the ingredients and of course for celebrating cauliflower (Aloo Gobi & Cauliflower Curry). Also for the end result as a crispy fried vegetarian (Vegan Potato Curry) side dish or even snack, and Cauliflower Pakora, undeniably I think will be a sell out. Anything fried is always a pick-up, wouldn't you agree? Remember, I have already told you before (Bitter Gourd Chips & Crispy Fried Okra)? That's right. Cauliflower Pakora ingredients requirement? Already listed below and these are of course, caulilower cut into florets and individually dipped into a chickpea, rice flour and spices infused batter and, oh-yes, fried for crunchiness. Outer crunchiness and soft melting moment inside cauliflower.
300g cauliflower - cut into florets
1 cup chickpea flour
1 tbsp rice flour
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp asafoetida (optional)
1 green chilli - chopped
1 red chilli - chopped
1 medium onion - chopped
1/2 inch ginger - chopped
2 sprigs coriander leaves - shredded
Water - as needed
Oil - as needed
Salt for taste
Sift flour and stir with all the other ingredients except cauliflower and oil.
Pour enough water, whisk/stir for a runny thick batter.
Coat caulis in batter and deep fry till golden brown.
Drain on kitchen paper/towel and serve while still hot.
