  • 300g cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 300g all-purpose flour
  • 100g rice flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 250ml water (approximately)
  • Oil for frying


  • In a large bowl put all-purpose flour, rice flour, turmeric, red chilli powder and salt. Mix them.
  • Add the water slowly to make a smooth batter.
  • Put the florets into the batter and mix well to coat every piece.
  • Put a frying pan with plenty of oil over medium-high heat. When it is hot enough drop the florets into the hot oil. Do not overload the pan.
  • Lower the heat to medium and fry them until golden and crisp.
  • Place them on a paper towel to remove the excess oil before serving.
  • Serve the cauliflower pakora hot with yoghurt sauce or ketchup.
