  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 1½ cups amasi or plain yoghurt
  • ¼ cup hot sauce or sriracha sauce
  • 200 g flour
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 2 t paprika
  • 1 t chicken spice
  • 1 T dried mixed herbs
  • ½ t black pepper
  • canola oil, for deep-frying
  • For the dunking sauce, mix:
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup soya sauce
  • ¼ cup sriracha sauce

Cooking Instructions

1. Wash the cauliflower under running water. Shake off the water and cut into bite-sized florets.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the amasi, hot sauce and ¼ cup flour.

3. In a separate bowl, combine the spices, herbs and remaining flour.

4. Heat enough oil for deep-frying. Dip the cauliflower florets into the amasi mixture and coat completely, then dip in flour mixture to coat completely. Repeat the process.

5. Deep-fry the cauliflower florets in batches over a medium heat and drain on kitchen paper.

6. Serve the cauliflower florets warm with the dunking sauce on the side.
