Cauliflower Fries / Cauliflower Fritters / Cauliflower Pakora


            This is a really an unusual but delicious way to eat the cauliflower a slightly crisp texture and a flavor that is irresistible....I have been inspired by this recipe from one of my facebook friends Nibina Sarhia..

            The best advice I can give is to fry the fritters in small batches and eat them straight away or with tomato ketchup or with any chutney of your taste....don't wait it to cool..just have it like my waiting at all..!!

            When you think of a crunchy salty snack... instead of going for any chips or french fries....lets try something different this time..Because when you go through the below information, eating fresh potatoes is much better than fresh cauliflowers..But when fried, the scenario changes...So more interested in cauliflower fries now...right?


1.Cauliflower -1 (medium)
2. Eggs-1
3.Gram flour-3/4 cup  
4.Salt to taste  
5.Chilly powder -1/2 tsp  or more. 
6.Ginger(grated)-1/2 tsp
7.Garlic(grated)-1/2 tsp
8.Cornflour/Riceflour-1 tsp
9.Baking powder-1/4 tsp
10.Coriander leaves (chopped)-1 tbsp
11.Oil- for deep frying

Preparation (of cauliflower)

~Separate the florets of the cauliflower, cut off and discard the stem.
~Wash and clean the cauliflower florets.
~Bring a pot of water to boil very
nicely in high flame.
~Add 1/2 tsp salt to this boiling water along with cauliflower florets & then simmer for 10 mins
~Off the flame & then carefully toss the boiled florets to a bowl & let it cool down.
~The cauliflower should be slightly soft and starts looking translucent. 

Preparation(of batter & egg mix)

~In another bowl, combine gram flour, baking powder, cornflour, coriander leaves, ginger, garlic, 1/2 tsp salt ,chilly powder & mix them with a spoon. 
~Add little water to this & prepare it into a thick batter. (should not be loose)
~Crack eggs to another deep bowl with 1/4 tsp salt & beat lightly.

 Preparation (of fritters/ fries)

~Heat oil in a deep pan for frying the florets in medium flame.
~Dip one floret to the batter and then dip this batter coated floret to the egg mixture.  
~Then dip it into the oil.
~When the cauliflower is dropped into the oil it should rise to the top and not stick to the bottom, (don't over crowd the pan)
~Deep fry it until the all sides are golden brown.
~If the oil is too hot it will brown too fast, if this happens reduce the heat.   
Serve it with tomato ketchup or any chutney of your taste...
These cauliflower fries are simple, comforting and unbelievably delicious !
