• Soya sauce -3-4 tsp
• Tomato sauce – 2 tbsp

• Black pepper powder – 3/4 tsp
• Corn flour – 6-7 tbsp

  2. Add cauliflower florets and cook till it is half done. Drain the water and let the florets cool.
  3. Add 2 tsp corn flour, soya sauce and a little bit of water to make a semi thick batter.
  4. Heat 3 tbsp of oil in the pan.
  5. Dip each cauliflower floret in the batter and put all the florets together in the pan to cook it for about 5 min. Stir continuously to avoid soya sauce sticking to the pan.
