Dry Batter



  • In a pot on medium heat add sesame oil. Then add onion and ginger and cook for 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Add garlic and stir for one minute before adding all other ingredients and cooking for 15 minutes. Carefully transfer to an immersion blender or carefully blend well with a hand blender. Set aside.
  • In a cooking vessel suitable for deep frying fill it 1/3 the way with vegetable oil and heat to 350F.
  • In a stainless steel mixing bowl toss cauliflower, onion, garlic, chili flake, sesame oil, buttermilk and salt in a bowl.
  • Combine all ingredients for the dry batter well. Remove pieces of cauliflower from the marinade and allow excess marinade to drip off. Toss in batter and shake off excess flour, fry for 5-6 minutes or until golden brown, then toss gently in sauce and top with green onions and scallions before serving.
