Cauliflower Lollipops

Fried foods may not be a very good idea but sometimes especially on cold rainy evenings when you are trapped at home the only thing that will elevate your mood is some fried, spicy snack with a hot cup of tea. This Saturday was one such day and here is what we had....

1/4cup all purpose flour
1/4cup cornflour
1tbs green chillies, finely chopped
1tbs ginger, grated
1tbs garlic grated
1tsp red chilli powder
1/2tsp white pepper powder
1/4tsp ajinomoto/msg
1/4tsp sugar
1 1/2tbs lemon juice
a pinch of baking soda
salt to taste
a little orange food colour
water, as required
oil for deep frying
10-12 cauliflower florets, keep the stems long

Wash the florets and leave aside to drain or pat dry.
Mix all the ingredients except the last two with sufficient water to make a slightly thick batter.
Heat the oil and when hot enough dip the florets in the batter and deep fry for about 5-7mins on medium flame till crisp. 
Drain well and serve hot with a sweet and sour sauce.

This is going to 'JFI - Cauliflower' event hosted by Mythreyee, initially started by Indira of Mahanandi.

And to 'FIC-Orange' event hosted by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen, initiated by Harini of Tongue Ticklers.
