Honey Garlic Cauliflower by Rita Choo

Cauliflower is unpopular as it has bland taste but unknown to many it has many amazing benefits. I choose to cook it in a tasty way so my family can enjoy its benefits.
1 cup plain flour
2 cups panko breadcrumbs
3 large eggs
1 head cauliflower, chopped into bite-size florets
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp coarse black pepper
oil for frying
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
Juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp. chilli garlic (can use Sriracha)
1/4 cup water
2 tsp. cornflour
1/4 cup spring onion, chopped

  1. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Toss in cauliflower until fully coated with flour mixture.
  2. Add panko breadcrumbs in one bowl and beaten eggs in another bowl. Dip cauliflower in beaten eggs then panko until fully coated. 
  3. Fry cauliflower until golden brown. Set aside.
  4. Whisk together cornflour and water in a small bowl. Set aside. 
  5. Combine soy sauce, honey, garlic, lime juice and chilli garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat. When the mixture reaches a boil, reduce heat and add the cornstarch mixture. Bring to simmer again and cook until sauce thickens.
  6. Toss cooked cauliflower in sauce until evenly coated. Garnish with scallions.

* For a healthier version, bake in pre-heated oven of 200C for 20-25 mins or until golden brown.
