Ingredients:
Cauliflower - 1 big
Gram Flour - 3 tbsp
Red Chilli Powder - 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Amchoor - 1 tsp
Coriander Powder - 2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Green Chillies - 2 to 3
Oil for frying

Method:
Wash and chop cauliflower into florets in a big shallow bowl. Add 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp red chilli powder, 1/2 tsp garam masala, 1/2 tsp amchoor, 1 tsp coriander powder and mix well. Add besan flour, 1/2 salt, 1 tsp red chilly powder, 1/2 tsp garam masala, 1/2 tsp amchoor, 1 tsp coriander powder, chopped green chillies and mix well with water and make a thick paste, with very less water. The paste should be thick enough that it coats all over the cauliflower. 

Heat oil. When hot turn the flame to medium. Dip each and every floret of cauliflower in the besan flour mixture till the whole floret is covered with the besan mixture. Fry in oil till it becomes golden brown. At one point of time, about 6 to 8 florets of cauliflower can be fried. Repeat the same with all the florets. 

Serve hot with Tomato sauce and coriander sauce. 

Note: If the paste is not thick, the pakoras will not be crisp enough.
