When selecting cauliflower, always choose medium flower which is tightly packed. If they have black spots then it's not fresh.
The consistency of the batter should be thinner than the bajji batter. If the batter is too thick, your fries won't be crisp. If the batter is too thin, you can't able to coat the florets uniformly.
For deep frying, do not add each and every florets one by one. Add all the florets in the batter and mix it well with your palm and take a handful of dipped florets and spread it carefully in the oil. Fry them on medium heat and in the final stages add a handful of fresh curry leaves and then carefully remove from the oil.
