Gobhi Pakora (Cauliflower Fritter)

Cauliflower or gobhi pakora is one of the best appetizers or side dishes what we crave for whether in parties or simply at regular meals or with tea. Delicious and hot pakodas made by dipping cauliflower chunks in a batter of besan, rice flour, cornflour with a pinch of various spices.

Ingredients :

Cauliflower florets - 8-10 nos. medium size ,
Besan - 1/2 cup
Rice flour - 3 tbsp
A pinch turmeric powder
A pinch red chilli powder
A pinch of baking powder
Roasted cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
salt to taste,
Oil for deep-frying


Cut the cauliflower into medium size pieces. Take the pieces in a pan and then add waterand salt. Boil the cauliflower pieces for 5-10 mins so that the cauliflower are half boiled. (You can steam cauliflower florets using microwave too. For that, add cauliflower florets and salt into water and put in microwave for 7 mins)

In a large bowl, mix rice flour, besan, salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, baking powder together. 

Heat oil in a pan. Dip the half boiled cauliflower in the batter and fry them until golden brown. Then add little warm water to the mixture to prepare thick consistency batter and then mix steamed cauliflower florets.
Heat sufficient oil for deep-frying. For my pan, I use about 5-6 florets for frying at a time.

Let them cook in med-high heat for 2-3 minutes or until golden/reddish brown. Drop them on paper towels to remove excess oil.

Serve them hot along with Ketchup or any of your favorite chutney.
