Cauliflower - 1, small
All-purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Corn flour - 1/4 cup
Rice flour - 2 tbsp
Ginger-garlic paste - 2 tsp
Red chilly powder - 3/4 tsp
Salt - to taste
Water - about 3/4 cup
Red food color - a pinch (optional)
Cut the cauliflower and separate into florets.
If the florets are big, cut them into halves or quarters as desired.
Make a batter with the rest of the ingredients.
Heat oil in a saucepan/kadai.
Dip the cauliflower florets in the batter and deep fry at medium-low until golden brown.
Drain on paper towels.
Serve hot with tomato ketchup or chutney of your choice.
- The batter made with the above mentioned amount of water is somewhat loose. If you want the batter to thickly coat the florets, add less amount of water.
- The batter can also be made with the addition of an egg + water.
- The fritters should be made at medium-low temperature for the cauliflower to cook completely. If fried at a high temperature, the outside can burn before the vegetable is cooked.
- Another method to ensure the doneness of the fritters is to cook the cauliflower (atleast partially) in the microwave before dipping in batter and frying.
I have a few awards to share today! Shubha of Chutki bhar pyar bestowed upon me two different awards a couple of days back. She is one of the fellow bloggers with whom I am increasingly getting familiar with. She's such a nice soul, I really like her as my friend! Thanks a lot Shubha for your thoughtfulness. I got my first ever "Rocking girl blogger" award and the "Good Chat Blog" award! It feels really good to be acknowledged, to be rewarded for your efforts. And these are just the way to do that. It feels great to be on the receiving end of these awards and better to be the one spreading it around! :-) Can I send them back to you too, Shubha!??
I would like to pass on the Rocking girl blogger award to:
