Sweet and Sour Crispy Cauliflower

Prep: 15 Mins

Cook: 20 Mins

Crispy pieces of cauliflower coated in a delicious sweet and sour sauce. The perfect dish for any day of the week

  • 1 cauliflower

  • 200g corn flour, seasoned with ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • ½ onion, diced

  • ½ green pepper, diced

  • ½ bunch coriander, finely chopped

  • 200g flour seasoned with salt and pepper

The batter

  • 200g flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 340 ml beer (1 standard size bottle of beer)

The Sauce

  • 4 tablespoons tomato ketchup

  • 4 tablespoons rice vinegar or white wine vinegar

  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • ½ teaspoon dark soy sauce

  • Cut the cauliflower into florets. Cut the cauliflower leaves into 2 cm pieces.

  • Cut the onion and pepper, if using, into 2cm dice. Mix the sauce ingredients together in a small prep bowl or ramekin.

  • Mix the batter ingredients and mix well with a whisk until smooth and thin with the consistency of single cream.

  • Half-fill a large pot, wok or deep-fryer with vegetable oil and heat to 180°C (350°F), or until the tip of a wooden chopstick or skewer starts to fizz after a second or so in the oil.

  • Dip the cauliflower into the batter, then carefully lower them into the preheated oil and fry for 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove the cauliflower pieces carefully with a slotted spoon and drain well on a plate covered with kitchen paper.

  • In a separate wok, heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil over a high heat until smoking-hot. Add the onion pepper and cauliflower leaves, and stir-fry for 1 minute until the onions are lightly browned, then pour over the sauce and bring to a vigorous boil.

  • Once boiling, add the cauliflower pieces and toss through a few times to mix everything together. Serve immediately
