BM #127 Week 2 Day 3 - 

Here is another party appetizer which is super kid friendly. These can be served just as they are with some sauce or they can be dunked in Manchurian Sauce. Both of them are just as delightful.

These work marvelously as a make-ahead appetizer. the mixture can be made ahead and shaped into individual shaped pops and frozen. Before the party they can be air fried and served hot.

The leftover pops can be frozen too.

Recipe Source - Scribbles from my notes
Ingredients - 

Cauliflower florets shredded 2 cups
Salt, Turmeric, Red Chili Powder, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder as needed
Schezwan Sauce 1 tsp (or as needed - Optional)
*Corn Flour about 1/2 a cup or as needed for binding
Oil for brushing

*Bread Crumbs or All Purpose Flour can be used instead of Corn Flour

Method Of Preparation -

Boil or steam the shredded cauliflower. Squeeze out any extra moisture and add it to a mixing bowl.

Add salt, turmeric, red chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, Schezwan sauce to the cauliflower and mix well.

Sprinkle corn flour and knead the mixture into a stiff dough.

Pinch equal portions of the dough and roll into any shape round, oblong or oval making sure that there are no cracks.

Brush each of the shaped dough pieces with oil and set them aside.

Preheat the Air fryer at 400 °F for 2 minutes. Arrange these greased cauliflower pops in a single layer and air fry them for 5 minutes, toss them around carefully and air fry them for 3 minutes. 

Depending on the air fryer the time may vary a little. Keep checking the doneness and the crispiness of the pops and continue to air fry in small increments so as not to burn them.


Preparation Time 25 minutes
Makes 18-20 approximately
