An extra that makes a festive meal feel truly special ✨





  • 550g small cauliflower florets
  • Vegetable oil for deep fat frying
  • 80g plain flour
  • 40g cornflour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • Large handful fresh chopped coriander (optional)
  • 150ml sweet chilli dipping sauce


  1. Cook the cauliflower florets in a pan of lightly salted boiling water for 5 mins. Drain well. Tip onto kitchen paper to absorb the excess water and pat dry.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer to 170°C or in a pan until a piece of bread turns golden in 30 seconds.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the plain flour, corn flour, baking powder, paprika, salt, turmeric, coriander (if using) and 150ml cold water to a thick smooth batter. Fold in the cauliflower florets until well coated.
  4. Use a slotted spoon to drop the battered cauliflower into the hot oil and fry for 2-3 mons until crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper and keep warm while you prepare the remaining fritters. Serve immediately with the sweet chilli dipping sauce.
