How To Make Cauliflower Fritters

It’s super easy to make these yummy veggie fritters

Step One – cook the cauliflower

  • Bring a pan of water to the boil – throw in the broken cauliflower florets and boil for just 5 minutes – then drain and rinse under cold water to quickly cool.

Step Two – Make the fritter batter

  • In a mixing bowl add the gram flour, spices, salt and pepper and mix.
  • Tip in the sliced spring onions and cauliflower pieces to the mixture and stir well.
  • Slowly pour in the cold water and mix into a batter.

Step Three – fry the cauliflower fritters

  • Heat at least 1cm deep of sunflower oil in a frying pan wait until it’s really hot and then drop in spoonfuls of batter – cook for a few minutes and once set flip over and cook for 3-4 minutes on the other side.
  • Remove the fritters and pop onto some kitchen paper to soak up some of the excess oil.
  • You’ll need to cook the fritters in 3-4 batches.

Step Four – mix up the mint raita

  • Whilst the fritters are cooking – mix together the cucumber, mint and yogurt and season with salt and pepper, pour into a serving bowl, ready for dipping the fritters into.

Step Five – serve the cauliflower fritters

  • Grab a platter and arrange the cauliflower fritters patties on one side. Throw on some salad and place a bowl of mint raita and some of your favourite hot sauce (we love the South Devon Chilli Farm Chilli Jam) on the plate for dipping.

Recipe Tips And Ingredient Add-Ins

How to store leftover cauliflower fritters

Leftover fritters can be cooled and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. You can reheat them by frying them in a pan with a little oil. Make sure to heat them through properly and to the correct temperature.

Ingredient Add-Ins

You can add in extra spices, chili, chopped fresh parsley or grated garlic. Or make these cheesy and add in some Parmesan cheese, or crumbled feta, even grated halloumi would work well.

Make gluten-free fritters

Gram flour is usually gluten free so fritters are a great option for a gluten free snack, just be sure to check the ingredient labels on all spices and other ingredients used to ensure they’re all gluten free.
