  • Make thick batter by mixing all the ingredients except cauliflower with little water.The batter should be thick like pancake batter.
  • Heat oil in a deep frying pan and start frying pakodas by dipping cauliflower florets one by one and then drop this in hot oil.Fry until crisp,golden brown colour. Transfer all the pakodas on to papper napkin to drain that excess oil.
