Directions

20 mins to prep

10 mins to cook

  1. Step 1

    Place half of the plain flour in a large bowl, add water and whisk, it should be a thin consistency.

  2. Step 2

    Mix together the remaining plain flour and rice flour, old bay, baking powder and pinch salt.

  3. Step 3

    Dip the broccoli and cauliflower pieces in the wet mixture then coat with the dry mix. Place on a rack to rest.

  4. Step 4

    Heat oil to 180°C. Fry the broccoli and cauliflower in batches for about 5 minutes or until crisp and brown.

  5. Step 5

    Add all ingredients for the sauce to a cold pan. Turn the heat up to medium-high and stir so that the margarine emulsifies in the hot sauce. Once the butter melts, remove it from the heat. Toss the fried cauliflower and broccoli through the hot sauce.

  6. Step 6

    Serve with sour cream, chopped chives and cucumbers.
