The preparation method is very simple. Prepare a batter using gram flour / besan, rice flour, corn flour and chili powder. Do not add more water . Just add few tbsp at a time and mix gobi with the batter. The final consistency should be light thick. Cauliflower should be coated with the masala and not too wet. You can either deep fry or bake them.

You can also serve gobi pakora with green chutney or add few chopped onion, chilies, cucumber and make gobi pakora chat. The similar way can be tried with paneer, mushroom, soya chunks, broccoli, baby corn, etc.. I have tried chicken and prawn pakoda. Always serve them hot for better results.
