  • Cook the cauliflower for about 6-8 minutes or until soft enough to mash; drain very well.
  • Place the cauliflower in a large bowl and mash with a fork.

  • Working in batches drop about a heaping tablespoonful of batter into hot oil; brown one side then turn and brown the other side (about 3 minutes per side).
  • Remove to a paper towel.
  • Repeat with remaining batter, adding in a little more oil if needed.
  • Serve with sour cream.
