  • Grate it and squeeze all the water out of it. This is the most important step of this recipe so be patient and remove as much water as you can.

  • Now in a micro safe box put the cauliflower and micro it on high for four minutes. The lid of the box should be lightly placed on it.
  • Let it cool down and grate the cheese in the meantime. I have used mozzarella as it binds well and becomes nice and stringy on cooking.

  • Roughly divide the batter into eight parts.
  • Apply a few drops of coconut oil to your palm and start giving the shape of tikki to the mixture, they should resemble crab cakes. The mixture is not tough to handle and a little pressure of the palm gives it the desired shape.
  • Start placing the tikkis directly on the hot pan.
