My Grandma Nickie used to make this 'treat' and we could never get enough. After many attempts, I've managed to copy her. Both my boys asked me to teach them to make it.

  • Toss cauliflower florets with salt in a bowl. Stir egg and vegetable oil together in a bowl; whisk flour and milk into egg mixture until batter is smooth. Working in batches, drop several pieces of cauliflower into batter and stir to coat.

  • Working in batches, fry battered cauliflower pieces in preheated oil until they rise to the top of the oil and float, 2 to 4 minutes. Carefully turn pieces over and continue frying until golden brown, about 2 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

You may want to fry longer for a darker, crunchy cauliflower, depending on your preference.

Once I get the first batch in the fryer I drop more pieces in the batter so that the batter coats and sticks a little better. My family loves this with fish.

Nutrition:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
