For day 3 of Blogging Marathon under the theme Kids Delight - Bite Sized food Iv chosen Cauliflower Bajjis. These are probably cauliflower fritters- Indian style!

                                           Coming from Chennai,India...........Iv eaten milagai (chilli) bajjis so many times at Marina Beach! Iv also eaten onion, potato bajjis...............but when it comes to kids, we always try and give them a healthier option. So I chanced upon this recipe one day when I was thinking how to get my kids to eat cauliflower. So here comes the younger one who is 4 loved it....

Cauliflower florets - 3 cups
Chickpea flour - 3/4 cup
Rice flour - 1/4 cup
Chili powder - 1 tsp
Hing/asafoetida powder - 1/4 tsp
Oil for frying


  • Bring a pot of water to boil. Add some salt. Switch off the flame and add the cauliflower florets. cover for a few minutes
  • Drain the water and keep aside the cauliflower florets
  • In a bowl, mix together the chickpea flour, rice flour, chili powder, asafoetida and salt.
  • Add very little water to form a thick paste. (so add the water slowly so you don't end up pouring too much)
  • Now, marinate the cauliflower in the flour paste and let it stand for about 15 -20 minutes.
  • Heat the oil for in a wok. Once the oil is hot, add the cauliflower in batches and fry them till golden brown.
  • Drain on kitchen towels.
  • Serve with ketchup or just eat it plain.
