A spicy fritter full of taste. Great as a side dish, or in between pita bread as a sandwich like my husband likes it. Leftovers can be refrigerator and eaten cold. *these measurements are approximate, I'm not good at keeping measurements*
- 6 -8 cauliflower florets
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 -2 serrano pepper
- 1⁄4 cup chopped parsley (fine)
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons flour (approximately)
- 1⁄2 cup milk, approximately
- corn oil (for frying)
- lemon (optional)
- Boil cauliflower until tender but not mushy.
- Once cauliflower is done drain, put in a large bowl.
- Separate the floret, keep it somewhat chunky. So cut it into half or fourths.
- Meanwhile chop garlic and hot pepper together in a mortar or food processor well.
- Add hot pepper,garlic,chopped parsley,1 beaten egg,flour,milk, and salt to taste.
- Batter should be thin, a tiny bit thinner than pancake batter.
- If batter is too thick, add a bit water. If batter is too thin, add more flour.
- Mix well together with a spoon.
- Meanwhile let oil get hot enough to fry.
- You can make the fritters large or small.
- Add mixture to oil with a tablespoon.
- Two tablespoon full of mixture will make a large fritter.
- Let fry until golden.
- Squeeze lemon on top (optional).
DH enjoyed these fritters last night. He loves cauliflower so this was a nice change from the way I usually make it for him. Made for Ramadan Tag.
I loved it! I adore cauliflower, and what could be better than fried cauliflower? :) Seriously, this was a nicely flavored, not greasy jazzed up way to serve an under appreciated vegetable. I even got my husband to eat a couple of helpings. Just remember to eat them as soon as possible after cooking; they don't taste quite as good at room temperature. I will most definitely be making these again. The recipe was simple and everything came together very quickly. Thank you!
