Fried Cauliflower


This deep fried cauliflower makes a great side dish or appetizer. Serve with a dipping sauce for a game day snack.

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 head cauliflower cored and separated to bite size flowerets
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon cumin seed whole
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • salt & pepper to taste


Steam the cauliflower for about 5 minutes; allow to drain. Combine eggs, milk, turmeric, salt & pepper. Place the cumin seeds in a ungreased skillet and toast over medium-heat. Shake the skillet until the seeds turn a deep brown & begin to pop. Remove from heat. Add half of the seeds to the egg mixture. Reserve the rest. Heat the oil in a skillet, dip the flowerets in the egg mixture, fry in several batches until browned on both sides. Sprinkle with the remaining cumin seed, salt & pepper.
