cauliflower pakora recipe    
Many of you should be wondering why silence and no post updates from rakskitchen. I took a short break as I am in Chennai now for some family function and other works. I thought I should schedule and go as usual. But I was bit lazy to do that and concentrated in other things in the life. But after these days, I thought it wont be nice to leave the blog abandoned and even when Sharmi called she insisted the same, to not take a break for so long. So today after a travel, I thought I will post one simple recipe. I left my laptop too at Singapore and could not edit pictures, but some how found way to post this recipe. This recipe is passed to me after my co sis gave me a cook book from which my BIL already tried this recipe.
I will try to post something here after if I find some time otherwise will be back with bang from next week.

Red chilli powder - 1 tsp

Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp

Turmeric - 1/4 tsp

  5. Transfer the drained florets to this batter. Mix carefully.
  7. Heat oil in a kadai and once hot, transfer the battered cauliflower one by one using a spoon.
  8. 4 cauliflower pakoras
  9. Fry until golden from all sides, turning once or twice to ensure even cooking. Add curry leaves and drain in paper towel.
  10. 5 cauliflower pakoras


    • The batter should be in a consistency so that it gives a thin coating to the cauliflower. Not too thick, not too thin.
    • *If you don’t have self raising flour, mix and sieve 1/2 cup maida (all purpose flour) with 1/2 tsp baking powder.
    • If you keep the soda in fridge and use cold soda, it comes out more crispier.

Serve hot with tomato sauce or green chutney, with fresh cut onion rings.
