Gobhi Pakoda-Khasta gobhi,Crisp cauliflower fritters
Gobhi Pakoda -Fried snacks and starters are a hot favorite during winters.As cauliflower is very easily available during this seasons so we make khasta gobhi,and many recipes and starters with cauliflower.
My favorite is Aloo gobhi ki subzi and Gobhi matar ka keema .There are so many fried snacks but I often make this easy,delicious and crispy cauliflower fritters which I make in few variations.
Today I am sharing my favorite version of making gobhi pakora ,to make this blanched cauliflower florets are dipped in gram flour,corn flour and semolina batter and then deep fried to a nice golden colour.These Gobhi pakoras are good to serve a crowd or on any special occasion,can be served with tomato ketchup or any tangy and spicy dip.
