    chef FIFI's Note:

    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*

      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!
