While choosing my dishes for Sri Lankan Cuisine, Cauliflower Frikadels caught my attention. I chose my recipes from The Wonders of Vegetarian Cooking, these Frikadels are just like Indian Pakoras. The taste is very similar, though these are made by marinating the cauliflower with coconut and spices.  The batter too is different , but they are fried golden beauties which can’t be refused.
Check out how I made them.
