Yesterday I promised a Chaat recipe but here I am with a crunchy fry.Will definitely post the Chaat tomorrow....
One Sunday noon my folks wanted something spicy and crunchy munchy to go with lunch. That’s when I made this cauliflower fry. It is similar to bajji but I added a few spices to spice it up further. Very yummy snack with steamed rice and sambar.
Cauliflower florets from 1 large cauliflower
Oil for deep frying
Make a smooth batter of coating consistency [like bajji batter] with water
Besan / chickpea flour – ¼ cup
Rice flour- 2 tablespoons
Cumin powder- ¼ teaspoons
Chilli powder -1 teaspoon
Asafoetida powder- a pinch
Pepper powder- ¼ teaspoon
Saunf powder- a pinch [roast saunf in a pan and powder]
Garam masala- a pinch
Salt to taste
1. Parboil the florets,drain excess water and spread on a kitchen towel for 10 minutes.
2. Heat oil for deep frying.
3. Dip the florets in batter and drop them into the hot oil and fry till it is golden brown.
4. Drain on absorbent paper and serve.
Goes well as a side dish with steamed rice and sambar or as a snack with tea.
