  • Stir in chickpea flour or besan, rice flour and salt to taste. Sprinkle water over the mixture and give it a good mix (using nature's tool, your hands!).Adjust the amount of besan, rice flour or water to get a good coating of the gobi florets.

  • Leave aside to marinade for about 5 to 10 minutes (optional; if you are in a hurry, you can fry them right away too).
  • Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Once the oil is hot, drop the flour and spice coated florets in batches and deep fry on medium high heat until crisp, golden and cooked through. Keep flipping the florets around in the oil. Do not over crowd the pan.
