Ingredients for Cauliflower pakoras

  • 190g (1 1/4 cups) plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 250ml (1 cup) water
  • 300g cauliflower, trimmed, cut into florets
  • Vegetable oil, to deep-fry

Cauliflower pakoras, How to Make

  • Step 1
    Combine flour, cumin, ground coriander, chilli and turmeric in a bowl. Make a well in the centre. Add the egg yolk. Gradually whisk in the water until a smooth batter forms. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.
  • Step 2
    Meanwhile, cook the cauliflower in a saucepan of boiling water for 3 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  • Step 3
    Add oil to a large, deep saucepan or wok to reach a depth of 8cm. Heat to 170°C over high heat (when the oil is ready a cube of bread will turn golden in 20 seconds). Add cauliflower to the batter and stir to coat. Add half the cauliflower to the oil. Cook for 3 minutes or until crisp and golden. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cauliflower to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat with remaining cauliflower, reheating the oil between batches.
  • Step 4
    Place the cauliflower in a serving bowl. Top with fresh coriander and season with salt. Serve with tzatziki.

Serves 4 as a snack or side.
