Indian-Chinese Sweet and Spicy Fried Cauliflower

Ingredients

  1. 12 cloves garlic
  2. 4 2" pieces peeled fresh ginger
  3. (3 cut into thin coins, 1 julienned)
  4. 1 head cauliflower, cut into large florets
  5. Kosher salt
  6. 2⁄3 cup cornstarch
  7. 2⁄3 cup flour
  8. 1 tsp. red chile powder
  9. Freshly ground white pepper
  10. 2 tsp. plus 3 tbsp. soy sauce
  11. Peanut oil for frying
  12. 2 small onions, chopped
  13. 8–10 Thai chiles, thinly sliced
  14. 1⁄2 cup ketchup
  15. 1 1⁄2 tbsp. sesame oil
  16. 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  17. Cilantro leaves

Directions

  1. Purée garlic, ginger coins, and 1⁄3 cup water in blender; set aside. Boil cauliflower in a pot of salted water until tender, 6–7 minutes; drain.
  2. Whisk together cornstarch, flour, chile powder, 1⁄2 tsp. salt, and 1⁄4 tsp. pepper in a bowl. Stir in half the garlic paste, 2 tsp. soy sauce, and 3⁄4 cup water to make a batter.
  3. Pour oil into a large deep skillet to a depth of 1"; heat over medium-high heat. Working in batches, dip cauliflower in batter; fry until golden, 5–6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel–lined plate.
  4. Drain all but about 6 tbsp. of the oil. Add onions; cook for 3–4 minutes. Add chiles and remaining garlic paste; cook until paste is lightly browned, 3–4 minutes.
  5. Add ketchup, remaining soy sauce, sesame oil, and 1⁄3 cup water. Boil; lower heat to medium-low; simmer until thick, 1–2 minutes.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste; toss cauliflower in sauce. Garnish with remaining ginger, scallions, and cilantro. Serve with white rice, if you like.
