These cauliflower or gobi bites are so tasty that they will be devoured in seconds. So I will suggest you, always make a large batch of this delicious and extremely flavourful snack. They are ideal for any occasion. Whether there is a house party or game day, these vegan snacks are just perfect.

To make these tangy and spicy bites you will need, cauliflower, which is cut in florets. Blanch it in hot water for a few minutes. This will make the cauliflower tender and will cook faster. These florets are then dipped in a batter.

To give some flavour to this batter add ginger-garlic paste and add red chilli powder to make it a little spicy. You can adjust the spice according to your liking.

Then make a smooth batter, dip the cauliflower florets into it and deep fry until golden. After frying all the florets, toss them in tomato and chilli sauce mixture. Serve immediately!
