Ingredients

Cauliflower dough

  • 1 head cauliflower (Cut into medium size pieces)
  • ½ tsp dry mango powder(optional)
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 2 tbsp psyllium husk
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Green filling

  • ½ cup green peas or ½ cup raw pistachios(if keto avoid green peas)
  • ½ cup raw almonds
  • 2 tbsp roasted peanuts
  • 2 serrano peppers
  • 1-2 inch ginger peeled
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Oil to brush or cook

Instructions

Prepare the cauliflower:

  • Take a head of cauliflower and wash it thoroughly.
  • Cut out florets and cut them into medium pieces.
  • Boil six cups of water with salt.
  • Add washed cauliflower into the boiling water.
  • Allow the cauliflower to sit in the boiling water for 3-5 minutes.
  • Take the florets out and allow them to cool.

Make the dough:

  • Take the blanched florets in a food processor.
  • Use the pulse function to mince the cauliflower florets.
  • Add salt(sindha namak), pepper, two tbsp almond flour and 2 tbsp psyllium husk.
  • Add ¼ tsp amchoor or dry mango powder.(totally optional, you can add some nutritional yeast too)
  • Pulse till a dough is formed. Allow the mixture to stand for a while (5 minute) so that the psyllium husk swells by absorbing the water from the florets.
  • Transfer the mixture into a large bowl.

Make the filling:

  • In the same food processor, take ½ cup frozen, thawed green peas( avoid if keto and take ½ cup pistachio nuts), 2 Serrano peppers or green chilies, ¼ cup cilantro leaves, 2 inch ginger, 2 tbsp roasted peanuts and ½ cup raw almonds.
  • Add salt, pepper and lime juice.
  • Use the process function in your food processor until a uniform mixture is formed. (Refer the picture to see the consistency)

Prepare patties:

  • Take the cauliflower dough and flatten it on your greased palm.
  • Add a small ball of the green filling.
  • Carefully, bring the edges of the cauliflower towards the center and seal the edges. If the cauliflower dough is not enough to seal the green filling, add a small amount of dough to prepare a uniform patty with the filling in the center.
  • Now flatten the patty and prepare the other patties by following the same process.
  • If you find the process very tricky, then add the filling to the cauliflower dough and mix well.
  • Prepare patties by just pressing a lemon-sized ball onto your greased palm.

Cook the patties:

  • Heat a pan and add a tbsp of oil or ghee if you are not vegan.
  • Add the patties and cook until both the sides are brown and crispy.
  • The process will take 15 minutes to cook the patties thoroughly.
  • To bake the patties, preheat the oven to 350 degree F.
  • On a greased pan, place the patties.
  • Spray or brush with oil.
  • Bake for 15 minutes and flip them and bake for another 10 minutes.(baking time may be less or more depending on the oven type)
  • 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.

Notes

Note:
  • Use buckwheat flour or kuttu ka atta if your fasting rituals are strict.
  • Drain the cauliflowers by using a kitchen towel if you don’t want to use the psyllium husk.
  • You can also use chia seeds powder for making the dough.
  • Add more spices or adjust spices to suit your heat level resistance.
