Winter brings the season for crisp, buttery white cauliflower. It slips into parathas, sabzis, mixed vegetable preparations and even pulaos. Cruciferous vegetables are also great snacks and, as Shilpa Shetty shows, a pizza crust. Here are recipes to show how you can use cauliflower to make addicting snacks.
Chef and YouTube creator Chetna Makan’s recipes are for quick home cooking. These extra crispy snacks are perfect for snacking while Netflix is ââchilling out and chilling out. In truth desi-style, they go well with masala chai. Don’t forget to serve them with ketchup or schezwan sauce on the side.
