- 350 gram cauliflower florals
- 1/2 cup gram flour
- 2 tbsp cornflour
- 2 tsp rice flour
- 1 onion sliced
- 2 green chillies chopped
- 2 sprigs curry leaves chopped
- 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
- 1 tsp chilli powder
- salt to taste
- 1/2 tsp ginger and garlic paste
- Cut the cauliflower into small-ish florets so they are wither bite-sized or slightly smaller. Wash and pat dry.
- Mix all the ingredients together and water to make the batter. It should stick to the back of a spoon but not be so thick it doesn't run off at all.
- Put the pieces of cauliflower into the batter and mix well so the pieces of cauliflower are well coated in the batter. Spoon bits into the gaps if needed.
- Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan - around 1/3 in (1 cm) deep or a little more. Once it is warm at medium heat, take spoonfuls of the cauliflower and place in the pan (generally 1-2 pieces of cauliflower in each spoonful, depending on size).
- Once the pakora has been cooking around 2-3 minutes and is going golden on the bottom, turn over with a slotted spoon and cook on the other side. Turn to any other side not yet cooked if needed. Once golden all over, remove from the pan with a slotted spoon to drain off excess oil then put on a paper towel to drain. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
