Fried Cauliflower Balls with Grated Bread and Parsley

On with 0 Comment
Fried Cauliflower Balls with Grated Bread and ParsleyWhen it's raining, nothing tastes better than fried snacks and that too with tea. How about tasty and crunchy cauliflower balls? To make them crunchy, I've used semolina and breadcrumbs with a spicy seasoning. You can also apply the same process to potatoes and onions. These fried balls should be consumed piping hot with a spicy dip. If you want a moist coating on top instead of a crunchy layer as made in this recipe, you can replace semolina and breadcrumbs with chickpea flour. You can also fill mozzarella cheese in these balls to complement the crunchy shell. Addition of roasted cumin seeds can make this recipe more delicious. Since these balls are deeply fried, use high flame during the frying process.
