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
2 eggs
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.
