Here is a tasty recipe from Moshe Aelyon of Room Temp by Moshe. Served as a starter for your romantic meal for two, or a snack for your next cocktail soiree. Mmmm – we love sharing finger foods.

Cauliflower Fritters with Lime-Yogurt Sauce
(Adapted from Ottolenghi: The Cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi)

Cauliflower Fritter Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (320 grams) Cauliflower (small one or half a large one), chopped into tiny florets (cube the stems to about the same size)
  • 3/4 cup (120 grams) of flour
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon toasted and ground cumin
  • 3 tablespoons minced parsley
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Yogurt Lime Sauce Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) Plain Yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Zest of one small lime
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 tiny clove of garlic crushed
  • salt to taste


  1. Make the Yogurt-Lime Sauce. Whisk all the sauce ingredients together.
  2. Boil salted water and add cauliflower. Cook about 8 minutes or until it is very soft. Drain and set aside to cool a little bit.
  3. Heat frying oil of choice in a high-heat frying pan (I use cast iron for this) to medium or medium low. I fill it up about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch up the sides of the pan.
  4. Mix everything except the eggs and cauliflower. Whisk in the eggs and then whisk in the cauliflower.
  5. With a tablespoon or a small cookie scooper, gently drop balls of the batter into the hot oil, taking care not to overcrowd them.
  6. After about 3 or 4 minutes, flip them carefully with a fork to cook on the other side. They should be cooked through with no raw ingredients.
  7. Serve immediately with the yogurt sauce or, as Sami suggests, on a picnic in pita with hummus and tomato.
