Cauliflower Spicy Fritters with Lime yoghurt

Sharing is caring!

These are not too spicy and next time I will be throwing in an extra chilli to give it a bit more heat for my own personal preference.   The texture reminds me of my sweetcorn fritters but these are made from the low carb favourite, cauliflower.  I also used coconut flour but you could try almond flour if you wished.  A nice snack or light lunch…or light supper and fairly easy to whip up a batch.  Perfect when you have a spicy, savoury craving.



1 cauliflower

1/4 cup coconut flour

3 tbsp chopped flat –leaf parsley

1 garlic clove crushed

2 shallots chopped (or spring onions)

1 Jalepeno Chilli Pepper, chopped

4 eggs

1.5 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1.5 tsp ground turmeric

1.5 tsp salt

1. tsp black pepper

550 Ml oil

Lime Sauce:

330g Greek yoghurt

2 tbsp chopped coriander

Grated zest 1 lime

2 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp olive oil

Salt and pepper


  1. Mix the sauce ingredients into a bowl and mix well.  Chill.
  2. Prepare the cauliflower, dividing it into florets. Add to a large pan of boiling salted water and simmer for 15 minutes or until very soft. Drain into a colander.
  3. Put the coconut flour, chopped parsley, chilli pepper, garlic, shallots(or spring onions), eggs, spices, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk into a batter. When the mixture is smooth, add the warm cauliflower. Mix to break down
    cauliflower into the batter.
  4. Pour oil into a frying pan – 1.5cm depth – and heat. When hot, spoon in generous portions of the cauliflower mixture, 3 tablespoons per fritter. Fry in small batches, controlling oil temperature so the fritters cook but don’t burn. They should take 3-4 minutes on each side.
  5. Remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper.
  6. Serve with the yoghurt sauce, eat and enjoy!

    Would these work in an air fryer or is the batter too loose?

      The batter may be a bit loose. Perhaps add more flour to thicken it.
