Tips:

  • As we are frying the vegetables here, use a frying pan having depth so that potatoes and cauliflower get fried up nicely using less oil/
  • Cauliflowers splatter while adding it in oil so be at a bit distance.
  • You can test if the oil is hot enough for frying by adding a cumin seed into it; if the cumin seed start crackling and comes up its good to go.
  • Pierce the potatoes before frying so that it gets soft inside and absorbs all the spices and salt nicely.
