Method
1.
Cut the cauliflower and broccoli into medium sized florets
Tasty trivia
Although we’re used to the white variety, cauliflower comes in a dazzling array of colours, including green, orange and purple! Any of the colours would work in this recipe
2.
In a pan of boiling water, cook the cauliflower and broccoli for 2 minutes until just cooked. Tip into a colander and rinse under cold water, drain well and set aside
3.
Add the self-raising flour and cornflour to a bowl, whisk in the ice cold water and add 1 teaspoon of salt. Mix until the batter is smooth and there are no lumps
4.
Heat the oil in the deep-fat fryer to 180°C
5.
Add the plain flour to a bowl. Dust the broccoli and cauliflower in the flour
Room for a little one
Children can help by coating the florets in flour
6.
Coat the cauliflower and broccoli in the batter then carefully place into the fryer using a slotted spoon
7.
Fry the vegetables for 2-3 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Remove from the fryer and place onto kitchen towel to drain
Checking deep frying oil
Check your oil is hot enough for frying by dipping a wooden chopstick into the pan. If bubbles form around the chopstick, you're ready to cook
8.
Repeat until all the cauliflower and broccoli has been cooked, set aside
9.
For the curry mayonnaise, mix together the mayonnaise and curry powder in a bowl. Add the lemon juice and mix well
Room for a little one
Mixing up the curry mayonnaise is a cinch. Children can work on this step while the grown-ups finish frying the fritters
10.
To serve, add the fritters to a large bowl and serve with the curry mayonnaise
