  • Now par boil the cauliflower florets with turmeric powder and ¼ tsp of salt. Drain the cauliflower and add to the prepared paste and mix thoroughly. Do not add any additional water since the water content in cauliflower will be more than enough for the masala to bind to it.

Notes | FAQ

- Only if your paste is too thick and not binding to cauliflower, sprinkle little water and mix.

- In case, the paste is too thin then add some rice flour to thicken it and make it bind.

- Do not add too many cauliflower florets at a time in oil for frying. Oil temperature will go down and you will not get a crispy exterior layer. So, to maintain the temperature of oil, add in batches and ensure there is enough oil for deep frying. I fried in 5 batches.

- The ratio of flour should be (maida: rice flour: corn flour – 2: 2: 1).

- I used Kashmiri chili powder for its good color and lesser spiciness. If you use regular red chilli powder, reduce the quantity accordingly

- While I have seen people making it in air fryer, I havent tried using it yet. I am not sure if I would get the perfect crispy cauliflower, as when we fry in hot oil

- Optionally you can add food color to make it bright red color or bright orange color
