Hi crystal I have started converting myself into vegetarian and amazed by your blog. I have first tried your vegetables olives fried rice and then stopped browsing your blog for a while. Until these two days I was on vacation and I get to explore your blog again. This cauliflower balls used to be my secondary school unforgettable snacks. My tuition teacher fried this and treated all of us during the tuition. Till then I can't forget this delicious snacks and keep asking my mum to make for me. Until today I still not able to eat it again. I wish to cook this soon and remember the good time during my secondary school. Thanks for sharing this great recipe. Hope to see you start posting new recipe.

Hi Nic

Thank you so much for your kind words. A surprise to see such lovely comment! :)

You are a beautiful and lovely lady. Wow, it is great to hear that you are converting to a vegetarian. Fantastic! I fell in love with vegetarian food!

Not too sure how your tuition teacher's cauliflower ball taste like, but it must be very good and I guess she has added a special ingredient "love" to it. So wonderful of her to take good care of her students.

Anyway, give it a try and sometime after a few tries and adjustment, usually you will be able to perfect the taste you love.

Have a brilliant weekend ahead!

Cheers :)
