  • If you find the process very tricky, then add the filling to the cauliflower dough and mix well.

Step-5: Cook the patties:

  • Turn the oven off and allow the patties to stand in the oven for five more minutes. This makes the outer edges a bit more crispy.
  • Serve the cauliflower patties warm and with green chutney.
