Cauliflower fritters

This one is a crispy fried cauliflower (Gobi) and is easy as ever. The same recipe can be used for broccoli, I bet it would taste equally good. Great tea time snack, or side dish for fried rice, veg pulav etc. for its simple and simply quick. Every time I prepare this, I binge to eat this. Here goes the recipe...

Cauliflower florets - 1 bowl
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Water for cooking
Oil for deep frying

For the batter:
All purpose flour or maida - 4tbsp
Rice flour - 4tbsp
Corn flour - 4tbsp
Ginger-garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 tbsp (or as needed)
Salt for taste
Kashmiri chilly powder for color (can use color powder also)
Sparkling water for making the batter

Mix all ' for the batter' ingredients using sparkling water and make a batter of slightly thicker than pouring consistency and keep aside. Bring water to boil, add turmeric powder, the cauliflower florets, cover with a lid and turn off the flame. Let this stand for 5 min. (this kills all the germs present in cauliflower florets). Strain the water using a colander and keep the Gobi aside. Now dip this Gobi in the batter and coat well, add more sparkling water if required. Deep fry in hot oil. Strain excess oil using kitchen tissue and serve hot.

Can add a pinch of baking soda for the batter if preferred that way.
