Notes about this recipe

    Really yum. I served as a main for the family with salad and pita, really good. My husband has made them before too, and he is not a super-confident cook, so they’re definitely not very hard to make

    These were excellent. I must confess - I did make some significant changes though. The yoghurt sauce was very nice. I used lemon as I had no lime -so good that I made another batch to use as a dip for chips. For the fritters I made the following changes: two eggs in place of four, supplementing liquid by adding about one quarter cup of water, added one half teaspoon of baking powder, one additional chopped shallot and one half hot red pepper minced. I pulsed the cauliflower after roasting in the oven for about fifteen minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Oil was very hot when I fried the fritters. My family really enjoyed these -resulted in crispy fritters with a more intense cauliflower flavour. I thought the spices were perfectly balanced and the tastes were complemented by the lemony yogurt.

    This is a simple recipe for Otolenghi/Tamimi but it still took @ 90 minutes with all the chopping and frying. I found the cumin to be overpowering, and normally I love it. I reduced the egg per Delys77's suggestion but still found them very moist inside even after 30 minutes in a 325 degree oven post frying. Not sure I will make these again.

    This makes for a fun, tasty vegetarian entree. My husband remarked that they reminded him of fish and chips, and I realized that the combination of fritters and lime yogurt sauce did indeed bring fish and chips to mind! The fritters were very light and tender in texture, with a faintly crisp exterior and a subtle warmth from the cumin, cinnamon, and turmeric. This is a great spice combination - the cumin and cinnamon really balance each other out, and the turmeric provides an underlying sweet earthiness. I chopped the cauliflower very finely, and it was thoroughly cooked in 10 minutes, then just melted into the batter. The lime yogurt provided a good tart accompaniment, and was by far my three-year-old's favorite part of the dish.

    Delicious. I made mine with some finely chopped chilli for a bit of heat and kept them on the small side to allow them to cook through quickly. Served with salad and some left-over salsa as well as the yoghurt dressing.

    Pg. 50 As he says, these were very reminiscent of pakoras, just a bit doughier On the whole I liked them, but I would prefer them to be slightly crisper. Perhaps a bit less egg and slightly hotter oil, with closer to two TB of batter per fritter. Sauce wise I liked them lightly dabbed with the yogurt dressing as too much was overpowering of the light but lovely cauliflower taste.

    Delicious with the lamb shwarma and tzatziki
