Cauliflower Bhaji

Its raining outside and I wanted to make the appetizer, but simpler and special...
I opted to make Cauliflower bhajiyan ....I wanted to make it some more tastier, added secret ingredients too...
I felt heaven when my 2 yr old son asked for more n more (I stopped him with 3 :-)  )
Now lets see the recipe:
Besan - 2 cups
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Garlic powder - 1 tsp
Chilli powder  - depends upon your spiciness
Turmeric - a pinch
Ajwain - 1/4 tsp
Lemon juice - 2 tsp
Yoghurt - 1/2 cup
Cauliflower  - Cut into small florets
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
Put the cauliflower florets in little water and cover with the lid till it becomes semi cooked...make sure its not over cooked.
Once it looks semi cooked, transfer it to another bowl.
Mix Yoghurt, Garam masala, Chilli powder, Garlic powder, Ajwain, Lemon Juice & salt. Make a smooth paste. Now mix it with besan and if required water till you get a kind of paste, not too watery.

Dip the floret one by one into the batter, fry it in oil (Make sure the oil is heated, otherwise the bhajiyan will be soggy)

Serve hot with ketchup or chutneys.
