Cauliflower fritters with lime yoghurt recipe

The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Foundation shows us a fresh way to prepare this flowery delight.

The lime yoghurt is a simple but tasty addition to the cauliflower fritters, which are always lovely during winter. Just watch how long the cauliflower cooks until it is tender but before it is mushy.
