Spicy Cauliflower Fritters
Although there are several recipes for Cauliflower fritters or patties, this is a little different. The original recipe was in the Age and the recipe by Steven Manfredi. It has a mild Middle Eastern flavour.
This is 1/2 the recipe , so can easily be doubled. I shallow fried the patties and reheated in the Air Fryer. The 1/2 mix made 12 small patties, 7x4 cm. I served them with Sweet chilli sauce.
160 g cauliflower
60g plain flour
1 1/2 tablespoons of parsley ,
1 clove garlic
1/2 an onion
3/4 teaspoon of ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of turmeric
Salt and pepper to taste.
1 tablespoon of oil
Cut cauliflower into small pieces
Steam cauliflower in Varoma until soft, ( 25 mins) set aside
Tip hot water out of bowl and rinse in cold water to cool bowl.
Add onion , garlic and parsley and chop, speed 5 for 10 seconds.
Add eggs, flour and spices and mix for 5 seconds. Scrape down and mix, 2 seconds.
Add warm Cauliflower and mix on speed 5 for 2 seconds. Mix should be a bit chunky.
Heat oil and fry until brown. Flip and cook other side.
Remove and place on hand towel.
