Recipe (yields 2-3 servings)⁣⁣
?Ingredients⁣⁣
– 1 small head cauliflower, wash & cut into florets⁣ & pat dry with paper towels ⁣
– 1 small green bell pepper, cubed⁣⁣
– 1/2 small red onion, cubed⁣
– 2 cloves garlic – sliced⁣⁣
– 1/4 cup [40g] dry roasted cashews⁣⁣
– 4 dried Thai chilis/red chilis⁣, softened in hot water & drained⁣
– oil for frying & cooking⁣⁣
⁣?Batter ⁣
– 3/4 cup [96g] all-purpose flour⁣
– 1/2 – 3/4 cup ice-cold water⁣
– 1/4 teaspoon salt⁣
– a few shakes of white pepper⁣
?Sauce Mix together 2 tablespoons soy sauce/tamari, 1/2 tablespoon thick dark soy sauce (for color), 1/2 tablespoon sugar & 3 tablespoons Chinese cooking wine/sherry/broth in a bowl & set aside.⁣⁣

✅Place batter ingredients in a large mixing bowl & stir to combine. The batter should be thick like a pancake batter.⁣
✅Dredge florets in batter, shake off excess & fry until golden brown (temperature 375F/190°C & I used a small saucepan). Then drain on paper towels.⁣
✅Alternatively, grease a baking sheet pan with oil, place coated florets on the pan. Brush florets with oil & bake at 485F/⁣
250°C until light golden brown for about 20-25 mins, be sure to flip halfway. For the last few minutes, broil to get a crispier ure (oven time varies)⁣
⁣✅To make the sauce, in a heated non-stick pan with 2 teaspoons oil, sauté onion until translucent. Then add garlic, bell pepper, chili & continue to sauté until fragrant. Slowly pour in the sauce & cook to reduce it slightly. Please adjust the sauce based on the cauliflower’s size.⁣
✅Finally, add the cauliflower florets, cashews & quickly toss them with the sauce until all incorporated. Serve with rice for a delicious meal.⁣
*Please be sure to dry florets well before coating or the liquid will slowly thin down
