Cauliflower Chilli Pakoda

Cauliflower Chilli Pakoda

Cauliflower Chilli Pakoda is yet another way of making pakoda that is everybody’s favorite.

In today’s version, I have marinated cauliflower florets with spices and corn flour and added besan just before frying to give that crispy and different texture to the fried cauliflower.

I am celebrating 10 years of blogging at Spice your Life! This blog was a conscious effort to start a new space for the different thoughts I then had in mind. A year later, I started the Kids Delight Event, to showcase Kid Approved dishes for the different occasion.

Every year the September month is spent celebrating both the blog’s anniversary and the event’s anniversary. Our lives are coloured and ruled by our kids. So what other best way to enjoy!

Do join me in this celebration with a crispy cauliflower pakoda. As traditions are followed, every year I try to create a menu. So for starters, these cauliflower pakodas join the Kid’s Delight Anniversary Party

  1. My snack loving son will gobble these up. Cauliflower pakoda look so crispy and inviting. Love the idea of marinating the gobi with spices before frying – gives them time to absorb the flavors. Yumm!!

  2. Congrats on reaching the 10 years’ milestone, Valli. I seems to have missed the post during my hiatus. Those cauliflower pakoda looks so inviting and crunchy. Now I am wondering why I have never tried these yummy looking fritters.

  3. Congratulations on !0th blog anniversary! These crispy cauliflower pakoras are reminding me of honey gobhi. That fried curry leaves and chilies are making it more appealing.
