Cauliflower in sticky, spicy and sweet sauce served with rice. Delicious and easy recipe for dinner.
1mediumcauliflower(cut into small florets)
Vegetable oilfor frying
2tbsppeanut or sesame oil
Heat the peanut or sesame oil in a small saucepan over medium low heat and add the ginger and garlic and stir fry for a couple of minutes.
Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Bring to a low boil; simmer for another 20-30 minutes or until sauce is thickened.
Whisk all the batter ingredients until well combined. It needs to be thick enough to stick to cauliflower, but not too runny, adjust the thickness of batter by adding more/ less water.
Pour vegetable oil into a deep frying pan, it needs to cover the cauliflower about halfway.
Heat the oil over medium heat.
Dip cauliflower florets in the batter and let the excess drip off gently setting in the oil. Fry for a few minutes on each side, then flip, repeating sides several times if necessary until you get a nice golden brown fried florets.
Remove and set on a cooling rack lined with paper towels underneath.
Let it cool slightly, then toss the fried cauliflower with the sauce (enough just to cover) and sprinkle with spring onions and sesame seeds. Serve with rice.
