You must have tried various fried cauliflower bites recipes but I guarantee that these are the crispiest cauliflower bites that you’ll ever have.
Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetable, why wouldn’t it be thanks to it’s versatility and great taste which ever you like to cook it. You can make soup, gnocchi, buffalo wings, rice, stakes, bites, curry well the list goes on and on. I’ve truly fallen in love with cauliflower rice and cauliflower bites.
Cauliflower bites are so easy to make and it’s perfect when you need of a snack, or watching a movie or game. It goes really well as a side dish for your lunch and dinner menus. The batter I used to make these cauliflower bites earlier was non vegan and includes eggs, all purpose flour, corn starch and some few ingredients but I’ve made a vegan version which is what I’m about to share with you.
- 1/2 cauliflower head – cut into bite size florets
- 06 tbsp of chickpea flour
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 1/4 tsp of chili powder or paprika
- 1/2 tsp of baking powder
- 1/2 tsp of turmeric
- Prepare your cauliflower bites – Cut the cauliflower into bite sized florets and soak in the salt water to get rid of germs and bacteria. Rinse the cauliflower florets in running water and pat them dry.
- Prepare the batter – add all the dry ingredient into a bowl and give it a good mix. Then add water and whisk well until the batter is smooth. Make sure that there are no lumps.
- Meanwhile heat up just enough oil to deep fry in a large cast iron pot or a wok.
- Add the cauliflower florets into the batter one by one and coat well.
- When the oil is heated add coated cauliflower florets one by one and deep fry for about 2-3 minutes till golden brown. Do not overcrowd the pan with loads of cauliflower because it will take longer to cook and will give it a soggy/oil soaked taste.
- Once cooked place them in a kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.
- Sprinkle some salt or chili powder and serve warm with some hot sauce or ketchup.
