Total time: 
Serves: About 20 fritters
  • Cauliflower – 1
  • Gram flour/Chickpea flour – 1 cup
  • Rice flour – ¼ cup
  • Roasted cumin powder – ½ tsp
  • Red chilli powder – ½ tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
  1. Cut the cauliflower into medium sized florets. Blanch the florets in salted boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and let them cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix gram flour, rice flour, roasted cumin powder, red chilli powder and salt. Now add water, one tablespoon at a time and stir with a whisk, until you get a smooth batter of pouring consistency but it should also be just thick enough to cling to the cauliflower florets.
  3. Heat enough vegetable oil in a deep frying pan and let it become smoking hot; then reduce the heat to medium.
  4. Dip one cauliflower floret at a time into the gram flour batter and carefully drop into the hot oil. Fry the fritters in batches and do not overcrowd the frying pan as it would bring down the temperature of the oil and make the fritters soggy.
  5. When the fritters turn golden brown, take them out and put on a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil.
  6. Serve the crispy vegan cauliflower fritters hot with tomato ketchup or mint-coriander chutney! Enjoy!
