Crispy Cauliflower Fritters Recipe With Parsnip: An Amazing Appetizer or Side Dish Recipe

I ate this amazing cauliflower fritter recipe at the restaurant Saar in the Big Apple recently. This appetizer recipe is a crispy package with a warm, soft and oh-so-delicious inside! I loved it. I hope you do, too.

Cuisine: Indian
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 parsnip, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded fontina cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 - 3 ground green chilis (optional)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil, for frying

Here's how to  make it: 

  1. Boil the cauliflower and parsnip until soft. Mash roughly. Add the remaining ingredients, season with salt and pepper, and mix well. 
  2. Heat the oil in a pan. When hot (but not smoking) drop a small ice cream scoop of mixture in pan. Flatten the top of the dollop with the back of the scoop. Once you have a nice golden brown crust on that side flip. Serve warm with a tangy cranberry chutney, a mint-cilantro chutney or sour cream – or eat plain.

You're very welcome :)
Love the two cheeses. Sounds delish. 😋

Me too! And the parmesan cheese from Whole Foods has a great delicate flavor that doesn't overpower the fritter.
