This is another variety of Cauliflower and Potato Pakora that is absolutely delicious. It can be had as a snack or as a side dish with Dal and Rice.
300 gms Cauliflower broken into florets
2 small potatoes deskinned and sliced thinly
200 gms Besan/Chick pea flour
2 tbsps rice flour
5 green chillies made into a paste
1/2 tsp Jeera/Cumin seeds
1/4 tsp Chilly powder
A large pinch of Haldi/Turmeric powder
2 tbsps finely chopped coriander leaves
Oil to fry the Pakora
Wash the Cauliflower florets and sliced potato thoroughly. Dry and keep aside. Tip the Besan, rice flour, green chilly paste, chilly powder, Haldi, Jeera, Hing, Coriander leaves and salt in a bowl. Mix thoroughly. Add enough water to make a thick batter which easily coats the vegetables. Heat oil in a pan. Dip the vegetables one by one into the batter and drop them into the hot oil. Fry on a gentle flame till golden brown and crisp. Remove and place on tissue paper. Serve hot as is or with a mint chutney.
