- 1 cauliflower
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon corn starch
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup grated Italian cheese
- Salt & pepper to taste
- olive oil
Cut cauliflower into small florettes. Parboil in salted water about 5 minutes. Make batter using rest of the ingredients. Dip cauliflower into batter and fry in about 1/2 inch of olive oil until golden brown. If the florettes are too large, split in halves for easier frying .
My mother made these. However, the batter is a recipe I got from a TV show. Whenever I make these my family eats them while I’m serving them and will fight over who gets the most. They think they’re more like a dessert than a vegetable.
