|Besan flour/kadala maavu||1 cup|
|rice flour/pacharisi maavu||1tbsp |
|red chili powder||1 tsp or as per your need|
|cauliflower||1 medium sized|
|turmeric powder||a pinch|
How to clean the cauliflower?
Take the cauliflower and roughly wash it in running water…roughly shred it into pieces…remove the long stems…Heat water in a vessel…add a pinch of turmeric powder and salt and allow it to boil…when it is boiling well switch off the stove and add the cauliflower florets to it and close the vessel with a plate…After 10 minutes drain the water and check for any worms…if it is clean and clear use it for the cooking.
How to make the bajji:
1.In a wide vessel add besan flour,rice flour,salt,red chili powder and asafetida…Mix it well
2.Add the cauliflower florets and mix it well…The water in the cauliflower itself will be enough to mix…In case you feel it is too dry add water and mix it well…Ensure that the cauliflower is coated well with the flour mixture.
3.Heat oil in high flame and when it is hot simmer it to low flame and drop the flour coated cauliflower and fry it till it is golden brown color.
4.Take it out from the oil and serve it tomato ketchup or green chutney.
1.Instead of besan and rice flour combo you can use maida and corn starch…For 1 cup of maida add 1tbsp of corn starch.
2.You can add ginger garlic paste,garam masala or any other spicy powder to the four.The choice is yours :)
