3/4 tsp Garam Masala
1/2 tsp Pepper powder
2 tsp Red Chilly paste
3/4 tsp Chilly powder
Salt to taste
2 - 3 strands of Coriander leaves
3 strands of Curry leaves (1.5 strand for Masala + 1.5 strand for Frying)
Pinch of Asafoetida powder
1/4 cup All Purpose flour
1/2 cup Corn flour

Recipe:
Chop cauliflower into medium sized pieces as shown in the picture below. Blanch this in salt water, drain the water and keep them aside.

Put 2-3 tsp oil in a thick bottomed vessel. Add chopped cauliflower and fry them for about 4-5 mins in medium flame until they turn light golden in colour.

Chop coriander leaves, 1.5 strands of curry leaves into small pieces as shown in the picture below. Add rice flour, all purpose flour, corn flour, chilly powder, garam masala, red chilly paste, asafoetida powder, ginger garlic paste, black pepper powder and salt in a vessel. Add chopped ingredients to the same vessel.

Mix them well by adding sufficient amount of water. Don't make the batter too thin. Add cauliflower pieces and mix well.

Keep oil in a thick bottomed vessel and heat. Put dipped cauliflower in hot oil and deep fry until it turns golden in colour.



Cut green chillies into two halves, remove seeds and apply pinch of salt and keep them aside.

Add this fried cauliflower again in hot oil, add cut green chillies, curry leaves and fry them together for about 1-2 mins.

Remove this from oil, serve hot along with tomato ketchup. I tried this recipe from Vahrehvah. Thanks Sanjay for this wonderful recipe.
