cauliflower pakoda recipecauliflower pakoda recipe | gobhi ke pakode | gobi pakora with step by step photo and video recipe. pakora or pakoda recipes are very common across india and are made generally with choice of veggies. perhaps the most common fritter recipe is onion or potato based, but there are other popular pakoda recipes too. one such easy and simple fritter recipes are cauliflower pakoda recipe, which can be served for myriad occasions.

well preparing the pakoda or pakora recipe is not rocket science and can be made with almost any vegetables. but the interesting fact about each veggie is, each recipe is unique and different. particularly with the gobi ke pakode is slightly different from other vegetable based pakoda. basically, the batter for gobi pakora is slightly thin so that it easily applies to the delicate gobi florets. in other words, the batter for onion pakora is thick, so that it can be mixed with onion slices. the same cannot be applied here and may eventually break the delicate gobi florets. anyway, i am particularly interested with the end result and gobi pakoda would never disappoint.

furthermore, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect cauliflower pakoda recipe. firstly, the gobi florets have to be fresh and more importantly should hold the shape once it is deep fried. basically, i would not recommend using something which is one week old. secondly, if you prefer to have a crisp pakora you can play with either rice flour or even corn flour. i personally prefer to have a rice flour based crispiness but either can be used. lastly, you may not need any side dish to be served with these. but i personally like to be served with green chutney or any spicy chutney recipe.

finally, i would like to highlight my other popular indian snacks recipes collection with this post of cauliflower pakoda recipe. it mainly includes recipes like paneer pakora, rice pakora, mushroom pakora, bread pakora, corn pakoda, sweet potato pakora recipe. in addition, do visit my other related recipes collection like,
