cauliflower bhajji

Recipe For : 2

Preparation Time : 20 minutes


Cauliflower              - 2 cups
Besan Flour              - 1 cup (Kadalai Maavu)
Rice Flour                 - 1/2 cup (Arisi Maavu)
Ginger-Garlic Paste  - 1 tbsp (Optional)
Asafoetida                 - a pinch (Hing/ Perungayam)
Salt                            - As required
Turmeric Powder      - a pinch
Chili Powder             - 1.5 tsp
Curry Leaves             - few (Optional)
Oil                              - for deep frying


  • Cut Cauliflower into medium size florets. Place florets in boiling water for 10 minutes. After that drain excess water and take cauliflower in a plate.
  • Take a bowl. Add Besan flour, Rice flour, salt, chili powder, turmeric powder, asafoetida and ginger-garlic paste to it. Trust me, adding Ginger-Garlic paste gives a very nice aroma to Bhajji. You can also skip adding Ginger-Garlic paste. Add water to the bowl in small instances and prepare a thick batter.
  • Batter should be really thick, so that it coats well on cauliflower. 
  • Heat oil in a frying pan. Dip florets one by one in batter and immediately fry it in hot oil.
  • Take it out after bhajj is cooked on both the sides. Drain excess oil and enjoy bhajjis hot. Fry some curry leaves and garnish bhajjis. You can prepare bhajji with other vegetables with this same recipe.
