Cauliflower Fritters (Gobi Pakora) Recipe

I still had a lot of cauliflower left after making a healthy chou fleur vinaigrette, so I finished the remaining head of cauliflower in a slightly less healthy way. These Indian cauliflower  fritters take no time to prepare and no resting time is required.  The batter is made from besan (garbanzo flour) mixed with lots of Indian spices. The rest really comes down to what vegetables are available in the refrigerator. 

Pakora are my go-to snack food whenever we have last minute guests. Fried food is always a crowd pleaser in my house!

Gobi Tamatar Recipe (Indian Cauliflower Curry) Recipe

Gobi tamatar is an Indian vegetarian dish made with cauliflower (gobi), tomatoes (tamatar) and ginger garlic paste. To thicken the sauce, I also added one small potato.

This is one of the healthier Indian dishes I know. The cauliflower is cooked in the tomato mixture until softened. The key to this dish is to use ripe, sweet tomatoes. I always make 2 batches of this dish; one extremely spicy with red chili powder and whole jalapeño peppers and one mild version for the children (and for me!). It's a good vegetable side dish, and a wonderful change of pace from traditional cauliflower salad.
