My Name Is Spice

Cauliflower pakoras with chilli sambal

Imogen Taylor - Sunday, July 24, 2016


Why has it taken me so many years to cook pakoras when I have been eating them my whole adult life? These are Cauliflower pakoras; I have par-cooked cauliflower florets before dipping them in the chickpea batter which I have spiced with my new "Sri Lankan spice mix". I have served them with a chilli sambal. 

For the batter; chickpea flour, salt and water. (baking powder is optional). Whisk till you have a thick batter. Adjust with more water or more flour according to desired consistency.
