It has been a very tiring day working and driving back home because the traffic was so heavy, I just hate heavy traffic especially on the way back home. Today I have made very simple dishes Tilapia Fish Deep Fried with Lip Smacking Sambal, Egg Sambal and Cauliflower Pakoda. I love Cauliflower cooked in any style, be it Chinese, Indian, Western or Malay.
I love spicy food so I made this pakoda slightly spicy, its best eaten just as it is that's how I have eaten. Now let me bring you to the recipe;
1 whole cauliflower (cut into florets)
5 tbsp of wheat flour
2 tbsp of cornflour
1 tbsp of chilli powder
1/4 tsp of turmeric powder
1 tsp of cumin seed
Water to mix the batter
Salt to taste
Oil to fry
Blanch cauliflower for a couple of minutes not until too soft, drain and set aside.
In a bowl mix wheat flour, cornflour, chilli powder, turmeric powder, cumin seed, salt and mix with little water, we need not too diluted and not too thick batter. Marinate the blanched cauliflower in the above batter for at least 20 minutes.
Fry the marinated cauliflower until it turn golden brown and drain the oil. The fried cauliflower will be very crispy and delicious, now our spicy Cauliflower Pakoda is ready to be served.
