Gobi 65/ Fried Cauliflower/Cauliflower Pakoda

Fried Cauliflower is a dry recipe. I often prefer to take it as a evening snack or as a side dish for roti. Here comes my husband's favorite.. the lip smacking Cauliflower dry !!!!:-). Its easy to make and does not take much time to do if you have all the ingredients.

Cauliflower - 1 clean and cut into small florets
Corn flour - 4 tbs
Rice flour - 6 tbs
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Ginger Paste - 1 tsp
Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
Pepper Powder - 2 pinch
Asafoetida - a pinch ( Optional)
Lime Juice - 2 drops
Orange food coloring - 1/4 tsp
Salt - Acc to taste
Oil - for frying 

In a vessel of water put the cauliflower florets and add some salt and boil it for 15 minutes. Drain the water completely by using sieve. Shift the boiled cauliflower into a bowl and add the corn flour, rice flour, ginger paste, chilli powder, turmeric powder, pepper powder, asafoetida, salt (as per taste) orange food coloring ,lime juice,toss well in the bowl. If need sprinkle very little water in the bowl. Refrigerate it for some time (may be half an hour). Heat oil in a deep frying pan and take the marinated florets from the fridge and deep fry in the heat oil in medium to high fame till golden color.

Note: Asafoetida gives nice aroma. Pepper and lemon juice can be sprinkled on the cauliflower dry while serving. In the heat oil pan add the florets one by one because if you add so much it may stick together.
