Recipe amount: 15 latkes

Cauliflower latkes

1 medium cauliflower (2 lbs)
2 each large egg
1 Tbsp chicken soup powder
1 Tbsp sugar
¼ tsp salt
tsp hot chili powder
½ cup self rising flour
3-6 Tbsp canola oil

Preparation steps:
  1. Cut the cauliflower into quarters. Boil the cauliflower for 20-30 minutes until soft. Drain the water and let it cool down a few minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, soup powder, sugar, salt and hot chili powder. Add the flour and mix well. Add the cauliflower and stir gently, not to mush the cauliflower pieces too much.
  3. Shape the mix into latkes: 2-3 inch wide and about ½ inch tall.
  4. In a non stick pan, heat 1-2 Tbsp oil. Fry 5 latkes at a time for 5 minutes each side. Add 1-2 Tbsp of oil to the pan before each batch.
Personal notes
Iva, my sister, emailed me this recipe with the title "Hit recipe". It sure became a hit in our kitchen. Guy, my son, suggested to spice it up, so our recipe has an added hot chili powder.
