PREP TIME: 15 minutes
COOKING TIME: 10 minutes
275g Cauliflower florets, cut into small bite size pieces
50g plain flour
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 cup water
Oil for frying
1/3 cup tahini
1/3 cup water, if needed add more
2-3 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp sriracha sauce
2 tsp chilli garlic sauce
1/4 tsp salt
Dried onions 1 tbsp
1 spring onion, chopped
Few small lettuce leaves
Wash and cut cauliflower florets into small bite size pieces.
In a bowl, sift plain flour and cornflour, add onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper and red chilli powder; add water and mix well to make a smooth batter like pancake batter.
Dip floret in batter to coat and gently drop in medium hot oil, repeat with all florets, fry on medium low heat until light golden in colour.
In a separate bowl add tahini, water, lemon juice, salt, sriracha and chilli garlic sauce, mix them well. Drop the fried florets in sauce mix, coat well and sprinkle dried onion on top, garnish with finely chopped spring onion and serve immediately.
If you are conscious of frying the cauliflowers, these can also be air fried. Slightly shallow fry to sear the batter and then place it in the air fryer or oven to cook it completely.
Its best served hot. Once you toss the florets in the sauce, serve immediately. Keeping it longer in the sauce will make it soggy.
