Gobhi Pakora: Cauliflower Pakora

Updated on July 2, 2015

Gobhi Pakoras

Gobhi Pakoras.
Gobhi Pakoras.

Even though it is deep fried, it is one of the favorite of my family along with other pakoras. I like them with mint chutney or even ketchip. The gobhi pakoras are very crisp and very tasty. Usually i have them in breakfast but you can have them at anytime of the day you want. Usually we have them when it is raining and with hot tea they taste heavenly. They are not difficult to make and the ingredients are very easily available. Since they are deep fried they are not exactly for the calorie conscious person. But then everyone has right to forget the health and think of tongue every now and then because God has given taste buds to us too


  1. Cauliflower:1 medium size
  2. Besan Flour: 2 Cups.
  3. Oil : Enough to fry.
  4. Red chili powder: 1 Tsp.
  5. Mango Powder or Amchoor: 1 Tsp.
  6. Cumin powder: 1 Tsp.
  7. Garam Masala: 1 Tsp.
  8. Coriander Powder: 1 Tsp.
  9. Salt: to taste.


1. Wash the cauliflowers thoroughly.

2. Cut the cauliflower in to florets or small pieces.

3. Set aside.

4. Now in a Bowl take besan flour, red chili powder, amchoor,cumikn seeds, garam Masala and coriander powder and salt.

5. Mix well and add little water.

6. Now beat the mixture in to a thin and smooth batter.

7. Now in a heavy base pan heat oil to deep fry.

8. When oil is heated, dip the cauliflower pieces in the batter and then deep fry them in oil on medium heat.

9. Deep fry till golden brown.

10. Take them out of oil and put them on the absorbent paper.

11. Serve hot with tomato ketch up or coriander chutney.

      Thanks Au Fait. I loved cauliflowers since I was child and I remember that even though we lived in rented house it did have some place in it where we used to grow seasonal veggies and cauliflower was one of them when the season came. Thanks for the votes and shares.

      My brother in law once fried them and I got to taste them for the first time. It was really good and surprisingly yummy. :)

      This does look delicious and the fact that I'm hungry right now makes it look even better! Cauliflower is a major cancer fighting vegetable, but is still not a favorite veggie here in the states. I don't know why because I personally love it and always have since being a child. My mother grew it in her garden and that was the best!

      I think it is so great that you are sharing some of your recipes so that people who want to learn Indian cooking instead of having to go to restaurants to enjoy it, can do that.

      Voted up, useful, gave you 5 stars, pinned to my 'Delicious Side Dishes' board, and will share with my followers! And someone has repinned it just that quick!

      The above picture of gobi pakoras brought back good old memories of consuming them with our evening tea. They are very delicious and this is the way we make them too.

      By the way, can you write a hub for making ranch dressing? Thanks.

      Voted up and interesting and rated 5 stars. Shared!
