for the cauliflower fritters

16 medium sized cauliflower florets
salt to taste
oil for deep frying
1/2 cup plain flour
1/4 cup cornflour
1/4 teaspoon red chilli powder
24 tablespoons water

for the sauce

2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
1 tablespoon finely chopped green chilli
1 tablespoon finely chopped coriander stalk
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
2 tablespoon dark soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
salt to taste
1 cup vegetable stock
1 tablespoon cornflour mixed with 1/4 cup water
handful of sliced spring onions and coriander leaves for garnish


Combine all the ingredients for the fritters except oil in a bowl. Mix well to get a thick pancake batter consistency of the coating. Deep fry battered florets until golden and set aside to drain on paper towels.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a pan. Add ginger, garlic, green chilli and coriander stalk. Sauté for half a minute. Add soy sauce, salt, sugar and pepper. Simmer uncovered for 2 minutes. Add cornflour mix and stir to avoid getting lumps. Cook for a few minutes, stirring till sauce thickens.

Add cauliflower fritters to the sauce. Mix once and garnish with spring onions and coriander. Serve hot with steamed or fried rice.
