Instructions

  1. Batter and fry the cauliflower

    • In a large bowl, add all of the dry ingredients listed for the batter.
    • Add water and whisk to make a smooth batter without any lumps. 
    • In a large pot, add the oil for deep frying and start heating. Dip each cauliflower floret in the batter.
    • Fry the batter-coated cauliflower florets in the hot oil. Only add a few pieces of cauliflower at a time as this will ensure even cooking and the cauliflower can get beautifully crispy.s
    • Once all of the cauliflowers are fried in batches, drain the florets on a paper towel to get rid of the excess oil.
