Crispiest Cauliflower Fritters / Gobi Pakoras

 
Crispy, Crunchy, Goodness with every bite......Made so quick and easy from a plain boring Cauliflower.....
 
 
 
I have been playing PEEK-A BOO with this Fellow for  about a week now, passing by several times a day while it was laying in my veggie basket by my kitchen window.. I wanted to cook it but I was dreading cooking this cauliflower the same old way every time...

So I thought of making some Pakoras out of it... I thought why not have it like a fritter, "My Egg Plant Pakoras were a hit", and tasted awesome...I was sure it would be, crunchy, appetizing, and have the same great flavors...
Here's what I did...
I washed and then cut up the cauliflower bunch, into big pieces....
"chop chop"

Then I prepared the Masala mixture.. I used All purpose flour, salt, chili powder, turmeric, and some CHAAT Masala to give it that special Zing......................chaat pataa:)
 
I even Threw in some Green Spring Onions, and then added the water to prepare the mixture.. "were almost DONE"
In the Meantime, Heat some oil in a nonstick frying pan, or wok. and when your oils ready, and hot dip one piece at a time into the mixture( making sure its all covered with the paste) and gently put it into the oil...
Now I want to add a Note here to let you guys know.. I have a lot of friends, and even my own sister's that when their frying something they put it into the oil, and cant wait to stir it around and turn it..... You have to be patient with frying veggies! don't stir or turn the fritters until they have changed color, to a very light yellow.. and you can tell the batter is stuck to the fritter, or any veggie... Otherwise, it will break, and the batter will cling to the pan instead of the veggie.
Believe me this tip really does comes in handy..
Keep frying your pakoras, until they turn nice and golden brown, and CRISPY from all sides.. Place them on a paper towel to absorb access oil and serve with your favorite, Salads, Chutneys, or Dips..
