Preparation
STEP 1

Whisk together 1 ½ cups flour, salt, paprika, cayenne & pepper.

STEP 2

In separate bowl mix together beer and baking powder. This will cause beer to release CO2 and fizz quite a bit. Mix flour mixture with beer/baking powder mixture.

STEP 3

Heat 4 cups of oil to 350 degrees.

STEP 4

In a separate bowl, mix remaining flour and season well with salt and pepper. Coat cauliflower in flour, salt and pepper mix, shaking off excess, then dip into batter. Try to get excess drips of batter off of cauliflower for a lighter fry.

STEP 5

Fry cauliflower until golden brown and crispy. This shouldn’t take more than 3 or 4 mins.

STEP 6

Remove from oil and place on a rack over paper towels and allow to dry. Toss in your favorite sauce or serve with a side of it for dipping!
